Last night I attended the NYS Baroque concert featuring Harpsichord player Jory Vinikour performing Bach’s Goldberg Variations. A wonderful concert – what a talent, also charming, and the audience was quite spellbound for the 90 minutes straight that he played from memory. I was late- I had a good excuse though, an audition for Opera Ithaca (check them out, a new company!) So I missed the first 30 minutes, and the pew creaked horribly as I sat down, familiar grey-haired concert-goers looking back with disapproval. It was a sweet evening – an old man in Carhartts bopping up and down during cheery musical moments, and Everett’s pediatrician was there, eyes closed just taking it all in (he is a keyboard player in addition to a doctor – badass). Vinikour is nominated for a Grammy, go Jory!
