The IPO played its last Mahler Wednesday night at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. At the rehearsal, we said thanks to Yakov and Amit the stage managers, Yuval the librarian, Drorr the doctor, Ofer the travel manager, Alexandra, Georgi and Tanya our last minute substitutes, Michael, Enrique and Omri who took care of suitcases, Michal the personnel manager, and Avi who planned the tour.
After a brief stop in Tel Aviv, the tour will continue with concerts in Athens, and visit to the United States for 2 weeks. We’ll return to Israel in November to visit families and launder our clothes, then leave for the Far East in December.
Peter Marck joined the IPO in 1976 and since 1979 has been Principal Double Bass.
