If you're still thinking about Peter Gelb and the Met - and who isn't? - take a look at this informative posting by William Madison....Next Sunday, June 3, at 4 p.m., Pacific Collegium will perform Frank Martin's Mass for Double Choir and a world premier by Ivan Moody, in Oakland at St. Paul's on Grand. I plan to attend, having missed performances of the same work by International Orange Chorale a few years ago. (Thank you for the email, Micky!)....Scooping Cal Performances, Other Minds has announced their Nancarrow Celebration, which will be on November 3 and 4 at Cal Performances, Berkeley Art Museum, and Pacific Film Archive. Nothing on their home page yet, but I have the email right here....In London, rarescale has three free concerts coming up at St. Leonard's Shoreditch Church, on 1 June, 6 July, and 20 July. Civilized times that Patrick would approve of: doors open at 7 p.m., the concerts, lasting about 1 hour, are at 7:30....Mild mockery: Credit Suisse, which is a major sponsor of the NYPO and Alan Gilbert, has launched an iOS app about Gilbert, his inspirations, and his influences. Someone forgot to tell them that Android is the dominant smartphone operating system....Met Opera on Demand (the new name for the Met Player - guys, a shorter name is better, really) is free for the summer. The available programs include recent HD broadcasts, the Schenk Ring from 1990, and Troyens from 1984, so if you need to catch up....The results are in from Zerbinetta's classical music blogger survey!
