Cosica and Verdi

Cosica and Verdi, next to closing, pulling down the best returns in this section with violin and violin and cello doubles. The size of the met looked to be a heavy handicap for getting over with the soft strains of the stringed instruments, but the team overcame this obstacle surprisingly. They did the regulation pop and operatic numbers, mixing in a bit of mild comedy here and there and finishing strongly with “Love Nest.” This brought them back for a jazzy medley, including “Dardanella,” which apparently is just becoming popular in the baby carriage borough.
