There's so much that can be said about the Cirque du Soleil "Saltimbanco" cirquedusoleil.com/en/shows/saltimbanco performance I saw last night at the Cumberland County Civic Center. In fact, Features Editor Rod Harmon captured it well with his review: pressherald.com/life/scoffing-at-limits-cirque-astounds_2012-10-11.html
I just want to take a moment to punctuate how dazzling and sonically mesmerizing the live music was. Both vocally and instrumentally. And so, I'm going to ask you to close your eyes and listen to these two clips. When you're done, watch the first one again to get a glimpse of how visually stunning the show was, but for now humor me and once you click on play, shut your eyes.
Ready? Here's the first one: youtube.com/watch

Yes, tickets are still available and the show runs through Sunday, October 14. theciviccenter.com
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
