What's in a Street Name?

At times, questions arise about our [Neighborhood Name] street names. Therefore, occasionally the street names will be defined. In this issue, one name from each section is explained. More to follow in upcoming issues!

Section 1 - Ensemble - a group of musicians, actors, or dancers who perform together.

Section 2 - Rolling Rock - a beer.

Section 3 - Crescendo - Music - a gradual increase in loudness in a piece of music.

Section 4 - Sinfonia - a symphony - In the 17th and 18th centuries an orchestral piece used as an Introduction, interlude, or postlude in an opera, oratorio, cantata, or suit.

Aside from the explanations of those musical terms and more specifically the particular words used to define them (Um...loudness, really? As in "Hey, could you please turn up the loudness on the T.V.?" How about the word volume? I think most people, children included, have heard of that word), I find the Rolling Rock definition to be lacking and funny all at the same time.

That's it. Just a beer.

It should also be noted that Rocket Man and I live in Section 2.
