Today was a day filled with music. After leaving the accountant with the delegated task of completing our 2011 tax filing, Voice from the Couch and I went to the Portland Art Museum. Although we had planned to sit and watch both of the John Frame videos, we also were treated to a noon performance of the Parker Quartet in the Arlene Schnitzer Sculpture Court.
Later, off we went to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, affectionately known as the Schnitz, to listen to Renee Fleming sing with the Oregon Symphony. Sebastian Lang-Lessing was the guest conductor. You'll notice there are a number of references to Arlene Schnitzer. The Schnitzer family is a major supporter of the arts here in Portland.
