Tonight we premiered our Russian Dreams program, Quite a few people showed up early for Elena's lecture, and everybody seemed very curious about the panorama of Russian music, sacred to profane, soldier songs and tangos, and welcomed it warmly on a beautiful California evening with the space shuttle going overhead at intermission! After we repeat in San Jose, San Francisco, and Sacramento ( where the projected 102 degree temp may force us to rethink our wardrobe) we will be on vacation, to regroup for a US Festival tour including Tanglewood and Ravinia in mid-July. Thanks to Elena for this program, and of course to McKenzie Camp our invigorating ( and very good) percussionist.
