Monday Murals: Stepping out with Ludwig van Beethoven


This coming Thursday, 22 November, the Ludwig Van series commences at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM). With over 100 events during the next eight months it's one of the largest Beethoven festivals ever seen in the UK. Many are free and at various venues around the city, to encourage and enable as wide a participation as possible.

Even better for me is that I now work at the RNCM, so I have few excuses for not attending. Three clever murals went onto three flights of stairs last Wednesday. One was a black and white depiction of Beethoven, one features the 40th anniversary RNCM logo, and this bright offering. 

There are also banners marking the series on lamp-posts along Oxford Road. If you look closely at them you see that Beethoven is listening to a pink mp3 player. (In the photo above you can see the white leads but the mp3 player is not depicted).

  7. I wouldn't need an excuse to attend, free or not. Lucky you to have the opportunity to get decent live music, I certainly don't here.

  8. Very good capture of the scene. Clever minds that came up with the stair mural The iPod earbuds are a sly addition I probably would have missed if you hadn't pointed them out. Looks like a beautiful building to work in. Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.
