Scott’s Thoughts- January 2022

It’s hard to believe that the pandemic started a year and ten months ago, and now it is 2022.

My head is sometimes still stuck in 2020. Not a particularly good place to be.

Penn Square Music has much to be thankful for. We have had three presentations. Tenors and Tequila, Basses and Beer and Jingle All the Cabaret. All were hugely successful. For this, I thank all our sponsors, patrons and audience.

I’m looking at 2022 and it is a very busy year. And I’m incredibly excited for it. Here is a little look at my calendar for the first half of the year.

February 10 and 11 – auditions for the 2022-2023 season in New York City. Applications are coming in and we will be hearing some very exciting singers.

March 11-13 – Scalia/Ginsburg – I’m incredibly excited about the people I will be working with some fantastic singers and the production is something visually to see. Get your tickets now.

April 24 – The next in our Opera: Up Close and Personal. Sopranos and Shots will be an evening of great entertainment.

May 13 and 15 – From Gershwin to Sondheim: A Night of the Classics. A Concert of wonderful traditional Musical Theatre music by six extremely talented singers. Not to be missed.

May 17-20 – My wife Phyllis and I attend the Opera America Conference. This should be an eye opening experience.

June 5 – The final concert of Opera: Up Close and Personal – Mezzos and Martinis

June ?? – A trip to England to see some opera and explore the country. More on that later.
