Return to Live Music!


View from my seat in Madison’s beautiful Overture Center Concert Hall

Olga Kern performed with the Madison Symphony Orchestra October 17 in its return to live performance following the long break due to the Covid19 pandemic. Photography is not allowed during performances so this is the best I could do. You can’t see it in this photo but the soloist wore a mask that appeared to be jeweled! Aparently, she wears a different gorgeous gown for each performance! I was pleased that she wore a beautiful purple one for this appearance. Of course, her performance was virtuosic and thrilling!
