Olympic grace

Hello! Suddenly a complete change of direction! A must see though – the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

There was an exciting development at the Proms, where the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra were joined on stage by the Antonio Marquez Dance Company. They worked brilliantly together. The climax of the concert was the mesmeric Bolero by Ravel, with added flamenco rhythms. Wonderful! Here are my drawings:
