Some listen to classical music while painting. Others have the radio on in the background at work. I’ve also talked to people who listen to classical radio programs while on the treadmill.
At concerts, we all sit and listen and watch the performers, but listening to recordings or the radio is often an accompaniment to other parts of our life.
As for me, I spend Saturday afternoons listening to the opera while washing dishes and catching up on housework. Of course, I also listen at work, but since it’s my (happy) duty to be listening to the radio. And like many others, the radio in our car is constantly tuned to West Virginia Public Radio. But Saturdays at home with the opera are some of my favorite times. If I get the housework done (what a wonderful feeling!), I just sit and relax, listening to the rest of the opera, and maybe reading a few pages of a book.
So, how about you? What do you like to do while listening to classical music?
