BAMirror team moves into the spotlight

BAMirror contributors will be walking the walk as well as talking the talk over the next couple of weekends. Three of our regular reviewers (Lee Shepherd, Julian Shepherd and Tony Villecco) and Broome County Arts Council Executive Director Sharon Ball are all donning their performance hats.

Villecco, a tenor, will be featured in Nov. 17 in “Basically Baroque,” billed as “an evening of rare and not so rare vocal and musical selections from the 17th and 18thcenturies. Also performing will be Jeffrey Wahl, recorder; Madeleine Iannone, harpsichord, and Emily Creo, bass continuo.

The concert will begin at 8 p.m. at the Unitarian Church 183 Riverside Drive, Binghamton.

Cost at the door: $10 (senior citizens and students, $8). Information: (607) 727-3894. Read the rest of this entry »

Were the arts part of your week?

BAMirror reviewer Tony Villecco attended Tri-Cities Opera’s The Tales of Hoffmann (as did I); Sarah Roche had A Date With Fate at BCC. You can check out their reviews below. I also saw a new Broadway show, Wonderland, which was much better than the reviews had led me to believe.

How about you? What drew you into the arts this past week?
