Last night, Artistic Administrator Sarah Squire and I did a program at a beautiful retirement community, Trezevant Manor. Sarah sang lots of Gershwin and Porter and I did a few Johnny Mercer songs. It was nice to run into several subscribers in the crowd.

"Memphis police are on the hunt for a woman they say used a baby as a weapon to fight off security guards during a shoplifting attempt Wednesday.
Police said the unidentified woman was attempting to escape from a Wal-Mart after being caught stealing when she hurled her 2-month-old nephew at a guard, WMC-TV reported.
The baby, who was seated in a carrier, fell onto the concrete floor and was promptly picked up by his aunt, who threw him again — this time at a Good Samaritan who was trying to tend to the infant, police told the station." more

One of our patrons came to the show on Saturday night and thought she saw a cross at this moment. She loved the production and came back on Tuesday, but didn't see the cross and actually wrote in to inquire why we changed the staging. Well we didn't change the staging, there never was a cross, but she imagined one. Kind of a powerful thing--opera charged imagination.
