Then the Good News
November 10, 2008
A faithful correspondent admonishes me that, since I have been presenting bad news from opryland (forgive me: I’ve just returned from Nashville; I of course mean the world of opera), I should give some of the good news that is current. Anne Midgette has written, with an affection that is clear-eyed and discriminating, an account of a magnificent National Endowment for the Arts event last week.
And here the Endowment has given us superb video clips surrounding the celebration. I commend them to you. May we all learn from the venerable artists who speak so inspiringly here.
