While greats of old continue passing, the New York season begins its beginning this week with some festive City Opera preliminaries. Some point soon, the metacommunity of the city's music audience will have reconstituted itself from near and far, as if it had never been dissolved. But it was -- any summer event here may as well have been in a different city altogether.
As for myself, I've not had a happy or productive summer for as long as I can remember. This one was no exception: good riddance!
But I welcome you all as you file in for the third season of An Unamplified Voice, scheduled to kick off very soon.
