Carl Tanner shines in Aida with Opera Colorado

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby featherMy wife, Dolores Arce-Kaptain, and I share a wonderful relationship with many talented alumni from Shenandoah Conservatory in Virginia. Among those folks is a favorite of ours--the operatic tenor Carl Tanner. I was fortunate to be at the release party at the historic Willard Hotel in Washington DC (2007) of Carl's wonderful holiday CD Hear the Angel Voices. BRAVO Carl--and we hope to hear you again soon!!! IMG_9316 November 15, 2015, after a performance of Aida with Opera Colorado, Carl Tanner, Dolores Arce-Kaptain and Larry Kaptain.

THIRST, a temporary outdoor installation featuring a 4,000-pound, 38-foot tall tree placed on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas, 2013. To create the piece, Women and Their Work invited visual artist Beili Liu,  Emily Little and Norma Yancey (architecture), and Cassie Bergstrom (landscape architecture) to collaborate. THIRST memorializes the loss of the over 300 million trees that died in recent Texas droughts, and acknowledges the devastating impact that changes in weather patterns have had on Austin. It also sounded as a call to action for conservation and sustainability.
