Our friend Mary Claire Rietz worked with residents of the East Side neighborhood in Covington, Kentucky to create an artistic performance atop the Licking River levee wall. It was a passionate call for awareness to an often forgotten area of the city. Meg and I played the critical role of warming the spectators as bonfire builders. The performance was documented and shared a few weeks later just a couple of blocks away at The Carnegie.
I skipped worked today to go see the Cincinnati Symphony perform The Leningrad with my friend Keaton. Keaton's an orchestra buff, so it was extra fun to have his commentary.
We got the tickets from a guest of Meg's and my Airbnb. The guest is a violist from Cleveland. She was subbing in for the performance.
As a side note, it's lovely to have a musician stay in our home. I walked into the house after work one day to her practicing the viola. It was magical.
Music Hall was quite striking. This was my first time inside since the renovations.
We're fortunate to have, what I learned from Keaton to be, a top ten symphony in our city and such a beautiful venue to watch it from.
