Paganini tops Art Talkers February 7 bill

On February 7, we had only one speaker who was an ATM speaker Olga Pogorielova. She told about Niccolo Paganini (October 27, 1782 – May 27, 1840), an Italian violinist, violist, guitarist and composer. Olga brought two musical compositions on CD to supplement her speech. The beginning of her speech was accompanied by Caprice No. 24 in A minor, being one of Paganini’s best known compositions. Olga ended her speech with the words from the lyrics of the song “A road without end” (the Soviet movie “Niccolo Paganini”, 1982), and then people listened to a fragment of this song.

Mark Taylor served as toastmaster. Graham Seibert as Table Topics host recycled an idea from last week’s EBA meeting: explain to a six-year-old where the wind comes from, or why there have to be both boys and girls.

We had several guests: Valentina, Natalia, Kate, Masha, Helena, Pavel, and a special treat, Sasha, the President of Toastmasters Lviv.

This week we met in the library’s cozy back room. There was space enough for everybody, but not much allowance for growth. Next week we intend to meet at Khreshetik 44. Please check back about Thursday for confirmation.
