Rolf just made a nostalgic distance recording with some of his not-so-old colleagues from his New World Symphony days. Hope you enjoy it! Keep posted for their next recording, hopefully from their recording retreat on the Isle of Wight.

Tonight’s the final performance of the Northern Lights Music Festival production of Tosca. This is probably the first fully staged opera produced in America, maybe the world, since the lockdown. It may be the only live opera production of the summer. ￼If you need a fix of opera, come to Chisholm tonight at 8:00pm or check out the live stream. It’s a great opera with fabulous singers. Rolf feels very lucky to be performing in the pit for his￼ 1st gig since the middle of March. Cheers to people seeking creative solutions to sharing live music!￼It is the final night for a chance to see Tosca, the only outdoor opera in the upper Midwest! Get your tickets now!
Don't forget that we will be live-streaming the performance...visit our website for more info. ... See MoreSee Less
