If you love opera, set aside the 2 p.m. hour this Saturday, April 17, and prepare yourself for a treat. If you’re curious about opera but have only a shallow understanding, this is your chance to explore a new adventure. If you had bad experiences as a youth and are ready to challenge your prejudices and begin anew as an adult, here’s your opportunity to grow up.
I’m the proud papa of an amazing daughter with an amazing voice. This Saturday, Carrie Schuster-Wachsberger will be having her senior-year vocal recital in Crouse College at Syracuse University, where she will be graduating next month with a major in vocal performance. She will be accompanied by her friend Nathan Sumrall on piano.
If you live anywhere near Syracuse, please join us for the recital and the reception, Jewish deli theme, which Emily and I are personally catering. The baked goods, which we spent all day Sunday baking (okay, Emily baked and I washed dishes), will be scrumptious—they were staples on our menu when Emily and I owned Emken Catering.
But this Saturday, Carrie will be the main attraction.
If you can’t attend personally, not to worry: The recital is being streamed live via the internet, through this link.
Do yourself a favor. You deserve the treat.

See you Saturday.
