How much do I love my friends over at Baltimore Concert Opera? Not only did they rise to the challenge of keeping opera alive in Baltimore in 2009 after the local Great Recession meltdown, but they are about as much fun as it’s possible to have on the job. Anybody who thinks opera is old-fashioned, formal and restrictive has clearly never worked with them! I LOVE these people – both as singer and photographer (I’m proud to have worked with them in both capacities)- and their inventive approach to opera never fails to impress me.
They asked me to come along and help them out with the campaign for their upcoming Cosi fan tutte (check it out!).

I feel sure that Mozart would approve heartily….
Head on over to their Facebook page and show ’em some love – and if you’re in town, check out the performances. Great singers and great music in the beautiful setting of the Garrett Jacobs Mansion in downtown Baltimore.
