The chorus part of the Berkeley Community Chorus and Orchestra has been learning Dvorak’s Stabat Mater since early January. Last Monday evening April 13, 2009, was our first rehearsal with the orchestra, and it sounded GREAT! This is a STUNNING piece of music, composed in honor of the deaths of his children. The music is wonderful to sing and wonderful to hear with a wide range of emotional tones. We’re dedicating the three free concerts to any parent who has lost a child.

My WRECK of a studio, the messiest it's EVER been!

I'm both oppressed and delighted with the mess I made, but I must clean it up before Open Studio!

Instead of cleaning up my studio, I’m headed to Indianapolis for the annual Art Libraries Society of North America conference. Now that I’m retired, I’m an art librarian without an art library, without portfolio. But I have friends that I’ve known since 1976 when I first started attending, and Indianapolis has some unique architecture and one of the best art librarianship programs in the country.
