John Grillo just blogged on www.classicalmusicnews.tv about the upcoming Pennsylvania Ballet tour in which he is participating. He writes:
I look forward to playing this tour very much. Since so much of the Broadway theater business is shut down this week due to strikes, I hope people hear about this event and substitute their plans for this exciting opportunity. It is always thrilling to be on tour with an arts group and play in a different city. I think this brings the company to a new level. When an arts group plays for a completely new audience, it forces the presenting company to be the best that they can be. It is in this elevated state of artistic awareness that the performers achieve new heights.
