Scott’s Thoughts- April 2022

It’s Spring!!!!!! After a very long winter that started in March of 2020, the world is coming alive again. That includes Penn Square Music Festival.

Last month our production of Scalia/Ginsburg was a huge success. Now to build on it. We have just launched our spring season.

Two more outrageously fun Opera: Up Close and Personal presentations. Sopranos and Shots on April 24th and Mezzos and Martinis on June 5th. Check out our website for more details and tickets.

I am always one who is looking ahead. My family always wonders why I don’t bask in the glow of a success, but am always looking at the next performance opportunity. Just part of my nature. I love planning. 

It’s a busy season for Phyllis and I. We have the two small events, plus our Gershwin to Sondheim concert of musical theatre. Two days later Phyllis and I get on a plane for Minneapolis for the Opera America Conference. We get back and have the final recital for the Penn Square Music Conservatory students. Then we fly to England to see our son Peter perform Rodolfo in La Boheme at Nevil-Holt Opera Company.

So I have planned ahead. 

Then there is next season. No, sorry. You’re not going to find out what it is until you come to the Musical Theatre Concert on May 13th or 15th. I will be announcing it then. But it is going to be a wonderful season with something in it for everyone. 

In the meantime, there is always yardwork to do as the flower beds and garden wake up from the winter. Enough to keep us all occupied.

I hope to see you at as many performances this spring as you can fit into your schedule. I’m incredibly proud of how Penn Square Music Festival and Penn Square Music Conservatory is growing. It is a bright future for all our singers and for the Lancaster community as all the arts organizations come out of hibernation and rebloom great music for all of us.

Have a wonderful Spring. See you all at our performances. Come say hi.
