It's been two weeks (!) since I last posted here - poor health and work pressures have conspired to keep me away.
It is good to report that at least the Met Broadcasts will continue through next season. And the Met has announced the start of a fundraising drive to raise $150 Million to fund these broadcasts for the forseeable future. Opera in America wouldn't exist without the Met broadcasts - the number of singers and musicians who got their start in music by listening to these broadcasts is legion. If these broadcasts are as important to you as they have been for us, we urge you to support the Met's efforts to raise the money to keep them coming. To get information about making a donation, either call 1-800-MET-OPERA (638-7737) or visit the Met's website.
