Chron review of "Legendary Lovers"

It was great to see so many of you at "Legendary Lovers" on Friday evening. I'm delighted that we were able to put this program on, despite complications from the hurricane. Many thanks to St Philip Presbyterian Church for accommodating us on such short notice!

The Show Will Go On!

"Legendary Lovers" will go on Friday evening at 7:30, but the venue has changed, since the Hobby Center just announced today (Thursday) that they must close for the weekend. So we'll be giving the concert at St Philip Presbyterian Church, 4807 San Felipe (at West Loop 610) at 7:30 pm.

The Houston curfew order has been changed from 9 pm to midnight, so there's no worry about being stopped going home from the concert. Parking for St Philip is on the east side of the church grounds, between the sanctuary and Yia-Yia Mary's Greek Restaurant. Hope to see many of you Friday evening for one of the only cultural events actually happening this weekend in our fair city!

In OutSmart

Check it out: yours truly is featured in this month's issue of OutSmart, the glossy zine catering to Houston's gay, lesbian, bi and trans communities. The article is a nice summary of both professional and personal activities over the last several years here in Houston (no salacious revelations here, just good clean fun). Guess I'm really out now...Happy reading!

Joel's Classical Relocating

Music-loving friends in Houston will want to know this bit of recent news: Joel's Classical Shop is relocating to 3514B S. Shepherd @ Richmond, as of next weekend. The old shop on Bissonnet is already closed. His phone number and email remain the same.

Houston is lucky to have such a wonderful classical CD store. Here's hoping the new location brings him lots of business and many good years. A toast to Joel and his new shop!
