If the Harbour Symphony was a person I’d punch ‘em in the face.

  1. yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.

    ugh.

  2. I love the Harbour Symphony!

  3. Mack Furlong’s composition was actually kind of beautiful. The whole St. John’s International Film Fest office stopped, listened and smiled.

  4. International *Women’s* Film Fest. Yikes.

  5. The whole Fortis Building stopped and took an Advil. But whatevs, it doesn’t bother me. If it makes some people happy, barmp away.

  6. I love the word “barmp” and I hate to see it misused.

  7. How’s it misused? That was me. Gus didn’t leave a title.

  8. By far, one of the best Newfoundland words EVER. BARRRRRRRRRMMMMMMPPP!

  9. Okay, that was you Elling. I didn’t like to see it used in the context of dissing the Harbour Symphony, which is sort of the ultimate expression of barmp. Barmp truth.

  10. Does anyone know whose composition they performed on Wednesday? LOVED that one!

  11. Wednesday was “Reflection” by Phil Yetman. The works of them can be found here

  12. Thanks!

  13. I don’t get it, the whole thing sounded like a traffic jam in the harbor. How did you make sense out of it?

  14. You listen to it.

  15. if the harbour symphony was a person it would kick your ass, or maybe it wouldn’t resort to violence…but it would kick your ass metaphorically by being more awesome than you

  16. I found it comforting. Sounded like when everyone in concert band is tuning at the same time.

  17. I honestly don’t love the Harbour Symphony, either.
