Read the first post from Miami.
It’s unusual to be shivering in Miami, but the locals keep telling us this February has been an unusually cool month. Orchestra members spent most of their day indoors, including trumpet player Andrew Koskela and professor Bernardo Hernandez, rehearsing for three hours at the Gusman, then retreating to a dressing area upstairs to wait for show time. A stack of Little Caesar’s pizzas was delivered, and, later, Krispy Kreme donuts.
Between rehearsal and showtime, the singers sat in a hallway under, well, Floridian orange light for a quick take of Arroyo’s “A Mi Dios Todo Le Debo.” From left in the video: Luis Figueroa, Michelle Walter, Romulo Lander, Jose R. Mellado, and Leonardo Tatis.
