This has been one of the busiest weeks in the last while, with a nearly full teaching schedule as well as the first week of staging for Opera To Go. Most of my online time has been spent either trying to fix my router (it's fixed) or responding in the negative to accompanist requests for various auditions around town.
Which begs another question: why is is that Toronto, one of the continent's busiest centers for the arts, is in the midst of yet another shortage of qualified collaborative pianists at the same time that there are supposedly a large number of recent CP graduates hitting the market looking for work?
At any rate, here is a great shot of the Distillery District (from **Mary**'s photostream on Flickr), where Tapestry New Opera Works has their offices and rehearsing space. What an awesome area to work in. The door to the Tapestry offices is just to the right of those steps, and the best coffee in town is right behind where this photo was taken from.
