A New World
Antonín Dvořák's Symphony From the New World is considered a roaring success following its debut last month at Carnegie Hall. The music is hauntingly reminiscent of the sounds of the New World, and serves as a reminder that music is universal.
At its debut in America, there was not a single individual in their seat. The entire audience cheered, and the event is now being considered the height of Dvořák's career.
The Symphony is expected to debut in Europe later this year, and is being lauded as one of the greatest compositions of the decade
London Ghost Tour
A group of ghost enthusiasts in London have arranged a ghost tour of the city.
After a string of ghost sightings across London, a small group has taken it upon themselves to chart these sightings and put together a tour of the most likely places to encounter a ghost.
"We are eager to convene with the spirits of those departed and hear what they can tell us," said one of the organizers, who wished to remain anonymous.
The tour is expected to debut later this month, and will take participants to no less than 5 locations around the city where ghosts have been seen. Those on the tour will participate in a seance at every location in an attempt to contact the afterlife. The tour will occur over the course of a week. Potential participants are encouraged to complete a spiritual cleansing before coming on the tour, as the spirits may not come to those who are unclean.
