Reviewing Boston Musica Viva.
Boston Globe, May 5, 2008.

Friday’s concert was part of a de facto valedictory tour for the busy local flutist Alicia DiDonato Paulsen, who heads west next season to join the Oregon Symphony.* I note, via Wikipedia: “Portland is also known for its large number of microbreweries.” Enjoy!

P.S. For the first time in memory, the Globe copy desk got to my original headline idea first.

*Update (5/5): I originally called them the Portland Symphony, which I will blame on cold medicine.


  1. We’re happy to have here here in Portland, but, alas, the name of our ensemble is the Oregon Symphony – the Portland Symphony is located northeast of your location! But we do have many, many breweries! Cheers!
