Ever since I can remember, I have always liked good music, especially the opera. Where this love came from, I don't know.
Fortunately, my music teachers tolerated my interest and took my to Cleveland to hear the Cleveland Orchestra (Beethoven's Ninth!) and the opera, especially when The Met would come to town for a week. People sometimes ask, "what is your favorite opera" to which I can only answer, "the one I am listining to now". However, I confess to being overwhelmed by "Der Ring des Nibelungen" by Richard Wagner. Recommend it highly to opera lovers. The photo is me about 14 conducting a piece in our living room. Enjoy the Music!
