Choral Singing Fans!

Try to catch this afternoon's repeat of the Volti program I heard last night. It's at St. Mark's Lutheran in San Francisco, at 4 p.m.

They're singing some world premieres and some Volti commissions (there isn't 100% overlap in those categories). As usual, this chorus of great singers sounds great; I especially loved Stacy Garrop's Sonnets of Beauty and Music, Morten Lauridsen's Madrigali, and the second of Alan Fletcher's Two Yeats Choruses. I'd like to hear it all again, of course.

We also had a minor blogging summit afterward, with me, M. C-, and Patrick Vaz all chattering away. Celeste where were you??

Wow, you are on it! Posted already!

Very nice to meet you and M. C- in person at last. And to find out about Volti, which I had never heard or heard of before.

The Stacy Garrop settings of Millay were my favorites -- I hope they'll do the whole series at some point.

Heh! I was hoping to lure a couple of people to this afternoon's repeat performance. Great to meet you as well!
