Symphony in the City @ The Vagabond
The New World Symphony makes me happy. It's hard to quibble with an organization that backs such a talented group of musical mavens, throws fantastic parties where top-shelf liquor is flowing (in this case Chopin vodka), and has as its fearless and tireless leader the lovely and charming Stacey Glassman. The vibe at the Vagabond Saturday night was all sweetness and light. The outdoor tiki-hut beds were the primo spot to relax and absorb the musical odyssey taking place on stage. The crowd: urbane and charming. The music: eclectic, seductive and impressive as always. The event was one last hurrah before the summer doldrums. As such it was a fitting tribute to a well-played season.
