Last night was a "blast" as I have learned to say in this great country! A big crowd, super menu and LOTS of delicious wine donated by one of our many generous Board members. Nathan Gunn was on irresistible form, a beautifully crafted Schubert group with the master song writer's very last song - Taubenpost - to bring the inevitable tear to the eye. And then his utterly charmingly done group of American numbers and finally the Count Susanna duet with Danielle de Niese.
Danni arrived straight from Zurich at 5pm, had a brief rehearsal/warm up with the masterful Julie Gunn and to everyone's astonishment threw off her numbers with the freshness and aplomb that defied belief considering what she had been through during her 31 hour day.
