Susan and Nic interviewed for the LA Times

This past Sunday before our first rehearsal of Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, Susan Graham and Nic sat down with L.A. Times writer Chloe Veltman at the Claremont Hotel. (You can read Chloe's post about the interview here.) This was the first time these two hams sat down together for an interview and let's just say that we can't wait to see it in print! The orchestra and chorale will be venturing down to Los Angeles with Nic to perform at Walt Disney Hall, where Susan will make her venue debut! Of course, you can also see us perform this set that celebrates Henry Purcell's 350th birthday in San Francisco on Thursday, Palo Alto on Friday and Berkeley on Saturday (sorry the Sunday concert is SOLD OUT). There will also be an encore performance at the Mondavi Center in Davis on November 14. Below are pictures from the interview:

La, la, la... Nic doesn't want to hear all the nice things Susan has to say about him.

Susan, Nic and Chloe all share a laugh (one of many) during the interview.

Nic just said something that won't be printed in the L.A. Times...

It looks like Nic's more excited about this performance than we are!

Thank you Mickey and Keelin for setting us up with a beautiful view of San Francisco and the bay at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley.
