    The old becoming new

    Life, Published on 04/09/2018

    » You know you're at a Scrubb concert when the majority of the audience shows up in striped tops with khaki or olive-green cargo pants. This look is part of the package of the faces of the band, Ball and Muay, along with the addition of old-age jokes that they now crack willingly. But it's not just the 40-something duo who feel the gravity of ageing, as throughout Saturday evening you also hear the audience themselves muttering under their breath: "I'm getting too old for this" or "I don't think my body is cut out for this anymore" after a string of pumping hits.

    Life, Published on 13/07/2018

Who better to judge than the conductor? The notoriously demanding Scarano looked pleased with the superb musicianship on display. At times, his signature frown melted into a warm beam. Devotees of the orchestra know what a rare sight that is.

    » People are natural actors. Observe how they tell stories to their friends, passing on telephone conversations or what they saw or heard. They mimic and flap their arms for emphasis. Hoping for smiles or groans. Novelists aim to do the same with more words. Alas, only the better ones succeed. All too many try and fail.
