Tonight, at 6:30 EST, (7:30 pm, CDT) to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth, the Verdi Requiem will be streamed live by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. A pre-concert show begins at 7:15 p.m. CDT.
Remember when we all use to watch TV together? Everyone knew not to call anyone when certain shows were on. I specifically remember having an attitude about anyone who dared call me during: Moonlighting. Let’s listen to the Verdi Requiem together! I’ve never heard a requiem I didn’t love, but the Verdi is quite dramatic. It’s perfect for this kind of thing, I think.
An old subway sign at the 190th Street stop on the A train. This is right at the entrance to Fort Tryon Park, my new favorite park, located in Washington Heights. If I wasn’t on so many deadlines I’d be up there now. Except maybe not since it’s supposed to rain, but you get the idea.
