So many fun events are coming up on my calender. There are some that I'm lucky enough to be attending and some which I'm hoping to attend but probably won't.
The Metropolitan Opera's series, The Met: Live in HD, will be simulcast at Nashville's Opry Mills with its gala premiere showing next Monday, September 22. Following this opening evening occasion are ten matinee performances between October 11 and May 9, 2009.
Nashville's own Nashville Opera begins its 2008-2009 season on the weekend of October 10th. The very talented and highly acclaimed folks at Nashville Opera are presenting to us Don Giovanni, The Student Prince, and La Boheme. Also, the popular Amahl and the Night Visitors will be featured along with a holiday concert. (Thanks to a good friend on Twitter, I'll be attending one of the above performances.)
In another local production, Tennessee Rep's Sweeney Todd will play beginning October 4th and ending the 18th at TPAC's Johnson Theater. (Thanks to a good friend on Twitter, I'll be attending one of these shows as well.)
Nine Inch Nails will play at our Sommet Center on October 31st. I haven't seen NIN since Lollapalooza '91 and am very excited about this show. (Again, thanks to a good friend on Twitter, I'll be in attendance.)
For fans of jazz, piano great McCoy Tyner plays the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on October 3rd. My dad (not on Twitter) very generously bought me a ticket so that I could finally experience both the beauty of McCoy Tyner's talent and the magnificence of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. (Friends on Twitter quickly let me know just how great and important a player McCoy Tyner is. I'm thrilled that I get to go.)
Finally, STS9 plays War Memorial Auditorium in November. I don't think I'll make this one (Twitter friends?), but it's sure to be a spectacular show. Their podcasts are frequently played on my iPod and there is an intimate beauty to War Memorial Auditorium that left me in awe the last time I was there.
Nashville's a blast and I'm glad I live here. I'm also very thankful for the friends and family who are so kind and cool as well. Have a great day!
