Chorus of All Souls Times Review

The concert in which I both sang and conducted this past weekend was reviewed in the NY Times, though not so favorably.  It was a wonderful experience and in many ways, the most bizarre concert I have been a part of.  I sang in two pieces – one an operetta about zombies, the other an early music-influenced doom trio about reanimation of the dead.  The piece I was asked to conduct opened the concert with lots of breathing, shoulder shrugging, and yawning (from the singers, hopefully not the audience!).  Of course any musician would prefer a fantastic review, but to get one at all is exciting.  I have had a surprising fall filled with opportunities to perform new music.  It’s a small, invigorated world that I’ve been honored to be a part of!  Here’s hoping for more strange gigs to come…
