"stellar" and "finely calibrated,
with subtle variations in color"

"simply stole the show
with his unearthly round tone
and singular power."

My Women's Schola was thrilled to sing for his first ever Easter Vigil Mass at the cathedral! The ladies brought down the house with some Bach, Proulx, and a new jazzy musical arrangement by Ricardo Ramirez, Director of Music (and my boss!); with one epic brass quintet; and my incredibly talented colleague, David Jonies, on organ.
I was excited to step in at the last minute for my first ever Bach B Minor Mass last weekend. I have never been called in at last minute to substitute for an ill singer, let alone on music that I needed to learn in a hurry, so it was a great professional experience for me... and, I now have a whole new role (and a great new aria--"Laudamus te")!
For the majority of the civilized world that was not able to join me and my colleagues earlier this month for the performance of the Pärt and Pergolesi settings of the Stabat mater, never fear. We know you would have rather been with us than wherever you actually were. :)
