Mozart on a Summer’s Eve: Say ‘Cello’ to Bailey and friends

Then, as he’s done for the past several years, he pops down to Spokane for Mozart on a Summer’s Eve, the annual two-night concert series held in Manito Park as part of Northwest Bach Festival.

Miss Manners: Participation feels required at concerts

DEAR MISS MANNERS: What does etiquette say about performers demanding audience participation at rock, folk and children's performances? I understand that this would not happen at the symphony. I escorted two children to a singer-songwriter's performance, for which we were charged a small fee, and found that the artist was not only asking, but demanding that all of the adults present sing along and do various hand and arm motions at her command. This seemed like a more severe version of what happens at some larger rock venues, when an artist may call out a question, and then demand a louder answer if it is given too softly the first time.

Bach at Barrister features guitarist, cellist in intimate setting

This year’s Bach at Barrister concert, an evening of chamber music at the downtown Barrister Winery, proved to be so popular that a second night had to be added. Seats for evening two are probably selling fast, says cellist Zuill Bailey, artistic director for the Northwest Bach Festival. “People are loving it,” Bailey said. “It’s the place to be. … People are at tables, people are in chairs, people are standing to the sides at the wine bar. We’re putting on shows that are events, and there’s always something very special or unique that goes on at the Barrister Winery.”
