Received an incredibly warm welcome via phone this morning from Jeffrey Kahane and LACO’s wonderful staff at the office on my first day as Executive Director (flowers, coffee, pastries and smiles). Already eating at my desk as I have hit the ground running with planning for the upcoming slew of exciting December concerts (including a personal favorite, Goldberg Variations) and activities. Fortunately, my toddler allowed me the luxury of sleeping last night and the 110 embraced me as I eased Downtown, avoiding any traffic. Thus, I’m of sound mind and invigorated spirit as I launch my LACO tenure.
