I'm loving this early Spring weather, how about you? It kind of makes me want to go barefoot and let my feet breathe a little and feel the grass that's finally set free from its blanket of snow.
I heard that my favourite orchestra, our very own Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony was a part of a recent concert special titled Barefoot at the Symphony. Here are a few words from their press release:
Idina Menzel's new PBS concert special, Barefoot at the Symphony - filmed in Toronto with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony at Koerner Hall with composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch and Menzel’s husband and former Rent co-star, Taye Diggs. This is Menzel’s first live solo recording.
Barefoot at the Symphony is scheduled to air on PBS affiliates throughout the United States starting
March 3. The concert will also be released on DVD and CD on March 6 and will feature additional songs that are not available on the PBS Broadcast. On Monday, March 5th, Menzel will be appearing on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' and later that day, she will guest on Chelsea Lately, which airs 11:00 pm/ET on E!
Sorry that I was out selling houses during the recent airing on Ellen (and also sorry that I didn't get this out to you prior to that appearance), but the good news is that Barefoot at the Symphony is available for pre-order on Amazon.ca and will be available at the Conrad Centre for the Performing Arts through the KWS box office.
