April in New York

An all too brief stop in New York for our spring show at the Metropolitan Museum's Temple of Dendur. Although we arrived in the cold and the rain, today was beautiful. A very familiar crowd included members of our Board, Alan's parents, friends from Big Sur days Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker, John Stirling Walker ( who wrote the poem to which David Conte's piece is set) and other dignitaries. "Wondrous Free" seemed to be a hit.

The Temple of Dendur is of course temptingly photogenic especially when you're the only ones in there.

We always arrive for a warm up two hours before the show. It's never just warm up - adjusting to the acoustics is the warm up part of it, but we also review and re-work musical or vocal issues which came up at the last performance.
