Our "Bravo Club" had a well attended meeting at the Harris last night. A small reception was followed by attendance at 30-40 minutes (not nearly enough) of the rehearsal of Act 1 - followed by a talk by Thomas Bauman of Northwestern, a former colleague (disciple?) of Daniel Heartz and the great and revered Joseph Kerman at UC Berkeley. Alas he did not attend the rehearsal and has little time to come to a performance such are the burdens of responsibility for the Musicological department at Northwestern. However it was extremely kind of him to pop in to meet our excellent and growing club of under 40s.
