Said the New York Times on Friday:
“It can be frustrating to be a fan of Ms. Brewer, one of the leading vocalists of the day, since she is quite selective about her opera roles and limits her concert schedule. But she is worth the wait.”
Christine Brewer is singing a recital in NYC on Sunday as part of the George London recital series at the Morgan Library. How I wish I could be there to see and hear my friend on stage. She’s one of a kind . . . and a much-loved treasure.
Ah well. I shall see Christine soon enough in Chicago as she sings the Mother Abbess at the Lyric Opera in The Sound of Music.
In this photo, I’m accompanying Christine as she joins the Gateway Men’s Chorus in my last concert with the group.
