A Few Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, Everyone!  I’ve been in Boston this week for some recordings and a concert tonight, and tomorrow I am meeting up with Paul in Miami!  I’m so excited for a week of concerts, masterclasses, some serious beach time, and catching up with some friends and family members who live down there.  Here are a few things I have been enjoying lately.  I hope you will too!

There has been a lot of press lately about the lack of diversity in programming in the Classical Music.  A lot of orchestras are sticking to music by written by dead white guys and playing those pieces over and over again.  Tonight, in Jordan Hall (Boston), Boston Modern Orchestra Project is dedicating an entire concert to the music of Joan Tower in honor of her 80th birthday.  This lady is amazing, and I have loved being fully immersed in her lush sound-world this week.  Click here for ticket information for tonight’s show, and here’s a little preview.

This black blouse is so pretty, and would make for perfect  “concert black”.

I might be slightly obsessed with houseplants, and these are some of my favorites for adding a little cheer to a room.

I am halfway through this book, and I am loving it.  I can’t wait to read the next two!

I loved this collection of comments and ideas regarding friendships and the best ways to maintain them.

We’re halfway through winter, and this sweater is going to keep me warm for the remaining weeks.  (except next week, because FLORIDA!). And it’s on sale now!

Did you watch the launch of Falcon Heavy this week?  Here’s a great interview with Elon Musk and Bill Nye on the future of space flight.  The actual launch starts at around 5:12.  It’s pretty fantastic.

Guys, I got a jump rope for Christmas, and I LOVE it.  I use it just about every day, and it is so fun, but also a great workout.  whenever I come back from a walk or a run, I just do some jumps in my driveway.  It definitely gets the heart pumping!

Living in my joggers lately, and these beauties are seriously on sale right now.

Yesterday was John Williams’s Birthday!  So here’s a little something to honor of him, and today’s opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Pyeonchang.
