Tonight's the Night!

Our World Premiere concert is this evening! On Wednesday we had a great dress rehearsal at St. Philip's. The Music Center is a nice hall with good acoustics, and we found that performing the music with a good piano was a completely new experience.

Aryo mugs for the camera while Nathan sings "At the Last Lousy Moments of Love"

Mary Baker was kind enough to come be our audience and listen for balance. She really liked "Love and Variations," our new commission by Ananda Sukarlan. We'd always thought the songs were beautiful, interesting, and audience-friendly, and it was nice to have our opinions confirmed by an impartial listener. Mary's favorite song was "Snowflakes." If you hear our concert tonight, send us a comment and tell us your favorite!

We're ready. Today Aryo has to play for some 1st grade OMA operas, but Nathan and I get to have diva days to rest and get ready. In fact, I'm getting my hair done by Rene, my fabulous stylist at Gadabout!

See you tonight!

Aryo runs his solo, "Isolde's Liebestod"
