A Happy New White Shirt Year to all of you, dear readers!
May your collars always be starched (though sometimes unbuttened), your sleeves rolled up, and may there always be a swooning soprano about to fall into your waiting arms (if that’s what you aim for). Or a swooning mezzo in pants. Either way, lots of swooning and White Shirts. – Cheers, 2015!
