Music critics to meet in NYC

I'll be in New York City to attend the annual meeting of the Music Critics Association of North America (MCANA), hear some panel on topics pertinent to critics, and listen to some great concerts. One of the panels will have the eminent critic Alex Ross on it, and one of the lunch sessions will feature opera composer John Adams. Concert-wise, I'll hear John Adam's latest opera, "A Flowering Tree," a concert by Osmo Vanska and the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, and a concert by the Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment.

For details about the MCANA conference, see the mcana.org web site.

Alex Ross! That man is just amazing. As for Adams I am not such a fan of his music but I am told he is a very nice man and easy to get along with. Have a wonderful time. I look forward to you telling us all about it when you return.
