Today, as I prepared the materials for the South East Asian Games Polo draw to decide the schedule, I was asked if we would like some music to go along with the draw. What a wonderful idea! Then came the realisation that I should be the one to choose some music with the draw.
What music would you choose for a draw, I asked myself? Well, instrumental I thought would be better than trying to talk over someone singing. I decided on orchestral, though not necessarily classical.
For the introduction of the draw and schedule, I thought we would have some happy, dramatic music for the occasion. John’s William’s Star Wars Main Theme came to mind.
For the actual draw process, I thought it should be something dramatic. Keeping with the Star Wars theme, I thought of the Imperial March from The Empire Strikes Back. Or more dramatically Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries.
If Malaysia gets a good draw then I thought we could finish with the cannons from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture Finale.
If it is a bad one, then we could go out with Abinoni’s Adagio in G Minor.
