Two events attended last week contribute towards enhancing my formal levels of "culture" and therefore should be included in this tiny post. First, last Tue I watched the finest comic opera existent, Rossini's BARBER OF SEVILLE, a performance by Teatro Lirico D'Europa at Proctor's in Schenectady. Great performers, most of them Eastern Europeans too (either Russian or Bulgarian) and I think a perfect occasion for one to start his/her journey into opera. Sunday the 9th I also catch about half an hour of Lionheart's performance at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. This was quite interesting: vocal chamber music chorus ranging from medieval, Renaissance or Gregorian a capella music to contemporary works. nice!
