Opera rehearsals started yesterday, and if those ~3 hours of putting things together and figuring out how to play with each other are any indication, it's going to be a great show! I'm one of two cellos playing for Hubbard Hall Opera Theater's production of Rossini's The Barber of Seville in Cambridge, NY. If you're in the area and are looking for a fun (it's a comic opera!), classy (it's still an opera!) way to spend an evening (or afternoon!), shows are August 16, 17 and 22 at 8pm, and August 24 and 25 at 2pm.
A beautiful day for a wedding! - Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid NY
Yesterday, August 5th 2013 I played the first Monday wedding of my career, at the always fabulous Whiteface Lodge. But this time the weather outshone the venue! Low 70's and breezy, sunny and no humidity to speak of. I love summer in the Adirondacks! (Although technically this was September weather, but if it stays like this the rest of August I'll be one happy camper.)
Many thanks to the newlyweds, Hannah and Russ, for bringing me out on this perfect day! Congratulations and best of luck as you start your new life together!
