About our Italian Christmas Concert:

 

I wish I could have gone around and thanked everyone in person after Sunday night’s concert, but alas, my voice was quite gone. I was so proud of the performances you gave last weekend. I trust you all heard complimentary things from the audiences. They really enjoyed the program and the personal touch you add to our concerts. I’m speaking truthfully when I say that it’s rare for an audience to feel so “at home” during a performance like this, but you can feel it in the air at our concerts. Thank you for all you do to make that happen.

Also, I wanted to check in with everyone about our planned schedule for next semester.  Our first rehearsal will be Wednesday, January 9th, at 7:30pm.  We won’t rehearse on Ash Wednesday, March 6th. Our concerts are the weekend after Easter, so I want to make sure we won’t have too many conflicts. Better to plan ahead now.

 

Here’s what I’m proposing - let me know your conflicts, if any, with these dates:

• Wednesday, April 17th - usual rehearsal

• Thursday, April 18th is Maundy Thursday

• Saturday, April 20th (morning) - rehearsal with orchestra

• Sunday, April 21st is Easter

• Wednesday, April 24th - St. John’s preview concert (probably w/ piano only)

• Saturday, April 27th (afternoon) - concert #1

• Sunday, April 28th (evening) - concert #2

 

The UWM students who recorded our "Missa Gaia" for our April concert will be getting back to me with a copy of the recording.  In the meantime, Barbara(P) has put the the recording she made at Missa_Gaia.html.
