Age is finally catching up with us (almost) ancient critical scribes. We attended and wrote about fewer cultural events due to octogenarian fatigue, aches, and general ennui. Still, enough energy to have adequate content from which to select the ten most effecting.
HAMILTON PHILHARMONIC. The whole season was superlative. The HPO’s musicians are all “A-Team” worthy; the conductor’s renown in the orchestral community continues to grow; and the eclectic program has something for everyone. The works chosen please, educate and entertain. The HPO is a credit to its host city and especially its audience. Kudos for a 2nd year in the black! *
