I met mezzo-soprano, Robin Flynn, yesterday at the Yerba Buena Gardens Merola concert. I had already been following her blog (*It appears Robin has deleted a lot of things online. I can no longer locate this blog!), so I was pretty excited to hear that she was going to be at Merola this year. I’m not one to introduce myself to people I follow, but I was standing right by her and had already commented on her site about playing in the orchestra, so I managed to open my mouth and say hello. (While I was dressed like a total grunge; I had bought a rather ugly black sweatshirt. I was so cold during the rehearsal I just couldn’t fathom surviving the performance as well. I really looked horrible!)

Now you can read about another part of Robin’s life here. Yes. She runs. A lot.


  1. It was so nice to FINALLY meet you!
    You didn’t look like a total grunge!
    Thank you for being so supportive and reposting the article. I’m looking forward to seeing you again for Elixer.

  2. It was great to meet you, Robin! And of course it was wonderful to hear you sing. See you at Cowell!
