I shot this video earlier today of the Inauguration Day Carillon Concert at the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam. In honor of Barack Obama finally becoming president of the United States, local musician Gideon Bodden played a program by American composers on the Oude Kerk’s carillon including Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa and Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin.

This video features a portion of the song Someone to Watch Over Me, by Gershwin. Sorry if it’s a bit shaky – it was cool and windy out today!

Happy New Year! Last night was pretty crazy in Amsterdam, as it often is. I shot a short video of the fireworks at midnight from a balcony looking out over Vondelpark (a friend has an amazing apartment there!). Amsterdam sounds like a war zone from about 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., and I think this video gives you a little taste of it. Sorry it’s not a great one – I just used my digital camera to film it! Have a very happy 2009!
