My husband and I just rolled into Ann Arbor for a few weeks. I love the shape of this summer, made of many random pieces and projects sewn together into a wild quilt of music and words. I just finished a new English adaptation of Hansel and Gretel for Tri-Cities Opera. Paul and I are working on a suite for concert band of selections from Arizona Lady. I’ll rehearse an upcoming recital program with Stanford Olsen over the next few weeks, and coach a group of people through Nozze. All of this plus wild blackberries from the bushes in my yard, open windows on summer evenings, and time to reconnect with people. What’s your summer project?
