    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

    June 20 The forecast rain didn’t happen so, having lined up for senior tickets in the morning, we were able to see an uninterrupted ‘Othello” in Central Park last night. The set and costumes were magnificent and the actors did their best but the direction gave  a somewhat bland production. I personally thought that some players were miscast and this distracted from the illusion.

Big Bird at the NYPL

The New York Public Library has mounted an  exhibit at Lincoln Centre to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the  founding of “Sesame Street”. It is a fascinating history for current Mums and Dads and, I suppose, some current Grandmums and Granddads! Certainly it is  a nostalgia trip for the enlightened parents of the 1970’s.

It is interactive and there are chairs of all sizes to fit all ages. Take your children for an hands-on experience they surely will treasure all their lives.

Here are some of the denizens of Sesame Street–Click on the pictures for detail:
