In any event (no pun) this was another lovely luncheon given for the Successors.
I’m always up for food……
The lecture after our luncheon was so interesting…’Drawn to Drawings: The Story of the Huntington’s Collection of British Drawings'
Now to the sublime. The Brand Library and Art Gallery has a lovely little Japanese Garden and ceremonial tea house where a memorial tea for beloved Tyrus Wong was held.
These precious tea cakes were served after the ceremony. They seemed to be yummy Mochi with something sweet & interesting inside.
Everyone attending was also given a bowl of Matcha tea….love it!
Tai Ling then showed a video of the magnificent CBS Sunday Show interview with Pam Tom, the Producer and Director of ‘Brushstrokes in Hollywood’ along with segments from the film.
You can order this beautiful book ‘WATER TO PAPER, PAINT TO SKY: The Art of Tyrus Wong' on Amazon.
Back to the L.A. Opera’s 'Young Artist Program’ 'MOZART: TRUTH THROUGH BEAUTY’ which was held at four venues, one being Brand Library and Art Gallery. I was delighted it was so close and easy to get to.
Oh how wonderful!!!
Thank you Peter for saving a seat for me. You are so very kind and thoughtful.
Elizabeth Zharoff and Nicholas Brownlee “Susanna, or via sortite” from The Marriage of Figaro. They were astonishing! Bravo Young Artist Program!
Michelle Siemens and Nicholas Brownlee “II core vi dono” from Cosi fan tutti
Absolutely loved it and was so inspired by the high level of young, talented singers our LA Opera developed.
Lest we not forget that May is ‘CAKE’ month for me as the count is now ten, I thought you’d like to see a picture of me with the original ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ gal! This was at the L.A. Opera League’s 'Backstage Magic' event at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Besides learning all about costuming we were treated to dinner!
Where would we be without the arts. Now more than ever they need our support.
May you always have cake!
