November 9, 2022 at 05:16 PM · Laurie, In a belated response to the weekend vote, I personally hope you continue to post these reviews. I always enjoy reading about who is performing where, what repertoire is being programmed, and other observations made by the critics (lack of attendance in Chicago, for example). I'm probably more interested in those aspects of the reviews than the actual performance critiques.
