Meanwhile, another “Barber” — Celeste Barbier — once the Third Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte — gave a lovely outdoor concert at a private home Saturday. She was definitely the First Lady on this occasion!

Celeste Barbier sings the songbooks at the home of Marc Bragg and Cynthia Motsch in San Diego.
