You might not know this about me, but I could very well win the prize for being one of the most challenging audience members in the region. I am known to get restless during concerts. I make lists, plan meals, and read the program ads and lists of donors too many times. I am even guilty of leaving a concert at intermission…more than once! To keep me glued to the edge of my seat, the performance has to be riveting, with passionate risk-taking and consummate artistry. I want to feel that the musicians are communicating right to me. I like it when my heart races, when I get goose bumps, when I get choked up.
I set Music on Norway Pond’s series of concerts to my own ridiculously high standards and I invite you, our essential audience, to join me.
