For someone who loves the mountain so much just by looking at it, it comes as no wonder when I say that some things on my bucket list are elevation-related, that being a winter or summer activity,
I was in awe when I found some brave souls who wanted to join me in a fantastic adventure that included:
- leaving at midnight, direction Alps.
- trekking at around 4 am in complete darkness and below-temperature
All of this, to witness something magic: A concert of classical music at the top of the mountain. It started right before the first rays of light hit the bare rocks, at the top of the Dolomites…
And then it’s there, the music starts, everyone snuggles up in the cold and enjoy the music, in silence. Not a single word is spoken, just listening to the sound of music.
“Great things are done when men and mountains meet”, says Sounds of the Dolomites‘ motto. I can only agree to that.
This is one of the part of the concert, a special memory that will stay forever in my heart.
Amen to that.
