For most of March, I will be in Australia, serving as a guest lecturer/curator for the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Because I'm traveling not as a journalist but as a temporary associate of the ensemble, it won't be appropriate to write about the experience—and, alas, I can't cover this notable group in the future. However, I may occasionally supply non-ACO-related tidbits from Down Under. At the moment I am in Melbourne, enjoying a glorious bout of late-summer weather. I'm sad to miss a string of significant events back home, including the remainder of Tully Scope, the new Thomas Adès quartet, Andris Nelsons's Boston Symphony debut, and Ecstatic Music.
