I am spending this week in New York at Carnegie Hall with the fabulous Maestro Kent Tritle and his Musical Sacra Chorus and Orchestra. I have shared this famous stage with these incomparable musicians previously and it remains a humbling and exciting experience. We are in rehearsal for Handel's Messiah and it is as if we are seeing this music for the first time - a fresh discovery. There is a reason that it has survived for so long - the music provides something new to learn at each visit.
Soloists Ian Howell, counter-tenor, Sidney Outlaw, baritone, and Colin Balzer, tenor are stellar - I am blessed to be a part of this quartet. The Orchestra Rocks - Sensitive musicians who support and at the same time play with delight and empathy.
