Discovering Samuel Barber

My choir is doing a piece by Samuel Barber this spring, Prayers of Kierkegaard, and I just love this beautiful, haunting music. Am I the last to know about Barber? His music is gorgeous. I’ve been exploring his other works, and I’m going to listen to his operas next. Except I can’t remember which one a friend was raving to me about. I think it was Vanessa.

I will also be exploring Pandora for the first time, while I’m at it!

Some graffiti I liked, I think I was on 14th Street. I love how there are layers and layers of it.
