September? You can have it

Sit down. Please don’t be mad, okay? But… I’m taking September off.

Yes, all of it. AB is almost four years old and in that time the longest vacation I’ve taken has been two weeks. In 2010. So – it’s time to refresh! Recover! Re-evaluate! Rejuvenate! Renew! Other words that begin with re-!

The concert season is only just beginning; make sure you check out the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, and Strathmore websites to keep abreast of the latest concerts and events.

THAT’S IT!!!!!

It’s Christmastime, of course! And that is NO TIME FOR ARTISTRY, thank you very much.

Ha… I laugh every time. đŸ˜€

On a completely unrelated but potentially interesting note, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is offering 50% off all tickets until midnight for Cyber Monday purposes. Might behoove you to check that out, no?

Never send your dog away from the opera

Also, don’t stab the scenery and try to keep the backstage clear of doves, rabbits, and frogs. Okay?

“Never try to discuss marriage with a musician”

Seventy-six days until Beethoven’s birthday!

The human touch

Is anyone else as freaked out as I am that this particular Tom and Jerry set consists of a person and a person?

It would’ve lured ME

Man, this horse is WEIRD. I mean, he’d rather have Mawzart over Beet-hoven? What the hell kind of farce is this?
