Last night at the opening night afterparty I finally spoke with Donald Runnicles, however briefly. Turns out he was music director in Freiburg for about 5 years in the late '80s! So we talked about that, though I forgot to ask if he knows my voice teacher or voice coach from my Freiburg days. Anyway, Thursday's picture is of Donald and me at the reception. I love this man. He is BRILLIANT.
