Insect, Amphibian, and Fish Days of Summer

If you’ve followed our previous posts, you’d have seen our regular season wrap-up. During our regular season, we featured music from Shostakovich, an exploration of marches, and paid a well-deserved tribute to Leonard Bernstein.

After Bernstein, we began our summer series which took us to beautiful and historic locations in Lexington, Paris, and Bardstown. We’re so thankful for our wonderful sponsors who host us in these wonderful venues.

So much music. So much fun. So much work.

I was going to say we were going to hibernate for a while, but the first part of that word uses the Latin word for “winter”. After last week’s thunderstorm that left thousands without power over the weekend, it is very clear that it is not winter. And then there’s the calendar and heat and everything, too.

So to the virtual dictionary I happily typed. And there, contained in its virtual pages, all virtually stuffed with virtual words, was my quarry: “Aestivate.” It means to be in an inactive, dormant state in a hot and dry season, according to  Some fish, amphibians, and bugs do this. “Aestas” is Latin for “summer.” So there you go. I’ll use it in a sentence which is mostly what this post is about:

“The band is aestivating, but will reanimate in early September.” Thank you; thank you very much.

So stay tuned for announcements once we get into August.

Thanks for your interest and support for successful seasons in the past, and for incredible seasons in the future!
