Whew, I'm going to be soooo busy this weekend ...
It's almost a shame that we're already booked for the American Girl party on Friday evening at Barnes & Noble because the Bard College Conservatory of Music is presenting what I'm sure will be a wonderful vocal recital in the Sosnoff Theater at Fisher Center. Works include those from Debussy, Ravel, Robert Schumann (a personal favorite), and Brahmns.
Fisher Center is such a great venue. Not only do they have a world-class lineup of entertainment, the Frank Gehry-designed center also is a fabulous building.
I took my then 7-year-old daughter to the Fisher Center last summer to see the Donna Uchizono Company. She was enthralled, especially when special guest dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov performed. (She recognized him as the lead in her had-it-since-a-baby video of The Nutcracker.) Baryshnikov may be in his mid-50s now but he still has compelling stage presence.
