We are on our way up to the Upper Peninsula now for a week of Mozart with the Pine Mountain Music Festival. Cosi Fan Tutte will be touring the region, with performances in Iron Mountain, Marquette, and Calumet, Michigan. Details HERE. The reduced orchestration is not without its challenges, but this is a time I always enjoy. The area is beautiful, the schedule is light, the orchestra is full of my friends, and Steve and I get to play together, which doesn't happen very much during the regular season.
Currently, at this moment, we are stopped in Milwaukee with a flat tire, but that dampens my mood not one whit. Opera is fun, Mozart is wonderful, and an easy-going road trip with my husband is a rare pleasure.
I love summer.
