first off ...Bravo Maestro !
Our friend, Joe Illick has been named the Artistic Director of the Fort Worth Opera!
Joe's a good guy and a lot of fun. He and his lovely and equally crazy wife, Gina introduced us to Operatic Tailgating in Santa Fe. It's sort of like a tailgating party at a football game except, well maybe crazier.
You go to the opera early and you....have a tailgate party :)
Take a good look at that food. Now that's tailgating. Courtesy of Joe & and his equally fun, talented and crazy wife, Gina.
that's Joe about to fight the bull ;)
and the gorgeous diva, Gina
Music of many types influences my work. I've been playing some of this operatic stuff since I was 9.
It will be great fun to see what operatic mischief Joe arranges at the Bass in Fort Worth.
