Not lost in space...

Here is just a little post to let you know I have not been lost to the outer regions of space. I am currently teaching an opera workshop at Indiana University and have limited access to computers (which is making staging Messiah must more of a reality). I always enjoy these opportunities to stage selected scenes from larger works. It is a great chance to experiement and to make artistic choices which work for scenes, but wouldn't work for the entire show. I am enjoying the low-pressure creative environment.

Be on the look out for our summer cocktail fundraiser. It will be Thursday July 19th and will open the 2007 Artscape. Details will be available on the website, but I know it will include a wonderful recital by AOT favorite soprano Bonnie McNaughton and pianist Roberto Velo, performing selected romantic pieces and Latin-American piano works. It will be a great chance to enjoy fine music, a summer evening of drinks and food, and supporting AOT's exciting 2007-2008 season!

We just got a postcard in the mail about the July 19 fundraiser, telling us to go to the AOT web site to buy tickets and see the program, but we can't find anything but this blog item that mentions either one. It's not a good idea to ask your patrons to rely on an out-of-date web site; that turns off more patrons than anything else.

Hi there - the information about the summer benefit "One Enchanted Evening" was on the website, but as a pop-up. Your browser must have a pop-up blocker (like mine!). We have now changed the site so that it takes you right to the information on the concert, program and all. Hope to see you there!
