I had planned to attend and review the Richmond Symphony’s “Messiah” and to hear Three Notch’d Road’s Christmas program last weekend, and was anticipating “An Evening at Versailles” with the Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia on Dec. 19. Then, a Woody Allen one-liner came to life: “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him about your plans.”
Treatment for some annoying ailments requires me take immunosuppressant drugs. They make me more vulnerable to currently raging flu and other respiratory infections, and possibly to Covid-19, even though I’m fully vaccinated.
So I’m avoiding crowds and public events until it’s less infectious out there.
In here, I’ll continue to post news, commentary and the monthly calendar.
See you at a performance soon, I hope.
ADDENDUM (Dec. 23): Conductors, singers and other performers all over the planet have fallen ill and canceled engagements.
