Social on the Seacoast
If there was no Music Hall, I’d be living in New York. No question. The thought struck yesterday as I was listening to Exec Director Patricia Lynch talk about upcoming social events at The Music Hall, and how the dearth of social gatherings in corporate America today (whatever happened to those family picnics? to after-work cocktails?) has caused people to come out not only to our shows but to our social and educational events.
These gatherings are where we fire up the neurons, where we meet old friends and make new friends, where we talk about everything from politics to popular culture to personal updates (don’t get me started on internet dating). There’s always a new intellectual or cultural avenue to explore. For me, it’s going to be tomorrow’s Opera Circle discussion with Dennis Kleinman,followed by The Met @ The Music Hall showing of La Traviata. I’ve never been an opera fan, but Dennis makes the HD opera broadcast sound so compelling—in his words,“thrilling entertainment”—that I have to give it try. To be continued. . .
