2020 Classical Music New Years Resolutions: Getting Started

Happy New Year! It's that time again for us to reflect on the past year and think about what we can change or do better in our lives. Sometimes these New Years resolutions end up changing our lives, and sometimes they fizzle out partially through the year. However, this year I am committed to completing my goals, and I invite you to join me in completing our goals!

A Musical Philadelphia: Vocalist and Personal Trainer Roy Wilford Belzer IV

It is with great pleasure that I get to introduce to you a friend of mine, Roy Belzer IV. Roy has recently moved to Philadelphia from Chicago, and has already begun making waves in the classical music scene here in Philadelphia. Aside from being an active performer, Roy has co-founded the Philadelphia-based choral group Tutti Allegro. Aside from his musical activities, Roy is also a personal trainer, and he aims to blend the two professions together.

Christmas Stories at the Theater

It's that time of the year again! With Christmas just a few days away, we often recounting stories we heard as children and plays, ballets, and other shows we may have witnessed. For me, Christmas has always been filled with reading stories by the fireplace in the living room, going to concerts of Christmas carols and festive music, and going to the theater to see a show. However, somehow the shows performed at Christmastime seem to always be the same. While I'm one for tradition and nostalgia, I can't help but think about all the wonderful theatrical works that would add a wonderful variety to the season.
