Two posts in one day — crazy, I know! But I just had to share with you this awesome interview I did with Danni Gee from SummerStage over email, about tonight’s FREE concert performance of The Wiz! No plans? I’m pretty sure reading this will make you want to come to Rumsey Playfield in Central Park — did I mention it’s free?
Tell me a bit about your role with SummerStage.
I am the Dance Curator for the festival and my role is to engage domestic and international dance companies and masterclass teachers for both Central Park and all five boroughs.

To continue on the Christmas tradition theme, I have to tell you about a concert that’s happening this Thursday, December 18. It’s the 35th annual A City Singing at Christmas concert at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and this year it features the St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir, the Young People’s Chorus of New York, and the choir I sing with, the New York City Master Chorale. This is the second year since I joined the choir that we’ve been invited to sing at this concert, and I am hugely excited.
I gave in and clicked on a Facebook ad recently. It was totally in service of this blog, and of having fun and offbeat things to do in the city, because it was an ad for a service called UpOut. At its most basic, UpOut seems to be a list of activities in the city, but it also boasts an Insiders Club subscription service. For $20 a month, you receive a list of events in the city and choose one which you’d like to attend with a guest. If you don’t (or can’t) pick one that month, you’ll instead receive a pair of movie tickets in the mail.
To continue on the Christmas tradition theme, I have to tell you about a concert that’s happening next Thursday, December 19, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It’s the 34th annual A City Singing at Christmas concert, and this year it features the St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir, the Young People’s Chorus of New York, and the St. Agnes Cathedral Choirs of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Last year my choir was featured, so I’ve experienced how lovely this concert is firsthand.
