Dreams over BBQ

Today I met with my friend Tammy Motola regarding an idea tat has been brewing in my head for the last two years.

Richmond has a pitiful dearth of venues for singers, and there are good singers in this town (just don't get me started on pianists). We bring in opera from Norfolk in the guise of Virginia Opera and Lyric Opera of Virginia. But they are not for this city, and have the "Local Bias", as does the RSO. Pretty sad.

Time to make a difference. Time to shake things up.
