the lover

by pieces of moments

I just wrapped writing the program notes for my musical BFF group, A Far Cry. Their program, “The Lover,” is next weekend (Jordan Hall on the 29th, Jamaica Plain on the 30th).  AFC always have stellar programming, and this cycle is no exception to that phenomenal rule. Come on out and get a load of Tchaikovsky’s sublime The Souvenir de Florence, Op. 70, Ginastera’s addictive Concerto per Corde, Op. 33, and Wolf’s delightful Italian Serenade.

If you just can’t wait to get a sneak peak, well, this is your lucky day! A Far Cry announces an open rehearsal in their studio this afternoon (January 22nd):

A Far Cry will be holding an open rehearsal tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 22 at our Jamaica Plain space – 146A South Street. Come anytime between 10:30am and 1pm and get an inside look at how we are preparing for The Lover.

I have one piece of advice for you about this rehearsal. GO!

After rehearsal, stop by one of my personal favorite sites in JP, Hi Lo Foods. Trust me, it’s like a trip towards the equator –  in the right direction.
