Presidential Inauguration 2009

At this point., it looks like I will attend President-elect Obama’s Inauguration, January 20, 2009. I won’t have a prime seat and I do  not expect to attend any of the Inaugural Balls. I’ll find a vantage point near the Capitol and do my best to get a good parade spot.

I lived in Northern Virginia for 10 years [’84 ~ ’94] and attended 2 presidential inaugurations. Given the historical significance of this inauguration, I am blessed to be able to go to Washington, DC again. I’ll do my best to capture a few photo keepers.

For this trip, the cycles will remain at home. I’ll blog and upload photographs if possible.

Our friend cellolang plays…

This billing is from an eCard I subscribed to from after Jennifer posted an announcement on her Facebook Wall.
More than fifty years ago, a show about New York City changed musical theater forever. Now, it’s coming home to make history once again.

This spring, WEST SIDE STORY returns to Broadway in a groundbreaking new production directed by its legendary librettist, Tony Award® winner Arthur Laurents.

From the first notes to the final breath, WEST SIDE STORY is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Mr. Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim – a collection of standards that includes “Tonight,” “America,” “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere” – is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance. This production will offer a bold new design that builds on the show’s raw power and emotion to create a fresh experience unlike any that came before it.

Don’t miss this thrilling presentation of a matchless work of art.

Our cycling buddy, Kett driver, Jennifer Lang will be in the pit [orchestra pit that is] playing her cello on Broadway for this production.
