I am busily preparing for Dr. John DiGaetani's talk and book signing titled "Wagner Outside the Ring." This will take place on Saturday, October 31, at 2 p.m., at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square.

There is also an all-Wagner concert coming up in November with soprano Linda Watson. This is with the Boston Philharmonic. It should be wonderful.

Running the Boston Wagner Society on a volunteer basis is a joy, but sometimes it can be very frustrating. There is so much to do during the season, and it's hard to work it in around my work deadlines. We have very few volunteers. I am very grateful for those volunteers that we do have. They do a wonderful job. But we need more volunteers. Still, despite all the hard work, it is a very much worthwhile enterprise, as I feel I am contributing to the cultural scene in Boston and its environs. I am also meeting wonderful people, members of the Boston Wagner Society as well as scholars and musicians. It feels great to have such a wide network.

Did anyone go to the Walkure film at the Coolidge, Sunday the 4th? I was wondering what people thought of it.
