A Midweek Madness encore for the first week of summer

It was three years ago -- it only seems like 13 -- in June that I launched Midweek Madness, a good enough excuse to offer an encore of the inaugural posting and the perfect way to celebrate the first full week of summer.

Here is the fab Mari Lynn, self-proclaimed coloratura soprano and musicologist, veering off her usual heilige kunst to destroy, I mean, deliver Gershwin's "Summertime." If you can't endure all of it, don't miss the very end of the performance.
