More to the day than Figaro!
Had a good lunch meeting with the new Dean of the Music School at Northwestern. I am trying to encourage a stronger collaboration between us at COT and this excellent school. Our relationships with Juilliard, Curtis, Yale and so many of the other great places where singers study have been so fruitful for all parties. And here in Chicago we have a terrific collaboration with the Chicago College of the Performing Arts at Roosevelt. I am now optimistic that something good, good especially for the singers which is what this is all about, will come of a new way forward with Northwestern. It is so important that those who are about to graduate are known to me and my colleagues. I will keep you posted!
