“I don’t like traditions”

“I don’t like traditions” “I don’t like traditions, I am very personal, very independent, I don&8217;t like intimate ladies, I mean in German lieder there&8217;s a lot of copy, a lot of imitation, a lot of tradition, and this I have put it aside.” //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2RKb19lzC8 Birthday anniversaries of composer Roger Quilter (1877), conductor Eugen Jochum (1902) and baritone Ernest Blanc (1923).

Like most of the offerings of this lively and explorative company, Henry was once popular and is now rare on any stage.

I believe in unicorns

I believe in unicorns

I believe in unicorns A Mariachi band was hired to play out over the Music Center’s new plaza from the outdoor balcony to welcome patrons into the theater.. Dried floral arrangements reeking of fall adorned the stage left and right and at the front. Yet what happened on that stage suggested sunny spring and summer as Mr. Camarena serenaded us with a program equally divided among bel canto specialties of his operatic prestige and the ...
