The merits of light-sabers vs. batons

Someday I'm going to conduct with a light-saber! (Mom, you can be the Storm-Trooper in the middle of the video on the tympani, of course.) This video link was sent to me by my friend Johanna - credit where credit is due!

In other news, I passed my orals. Classes are over in a week and a half, and graduation is the week after that. There sure is a lot to get done in that time!

Kantorei performance

I am pleased to announce that tomorrow, Friday, April 6, and Saturday, April 7, Westminster Kantorei and Fuma Sacra will be performing Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610. We will be in Princeton on Friday, and in Manhattan at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church on Saturday. Both concerts are at 8 pm - I encourage you to check out the Westminster website for further information.

This will be my last performance with Kantorei, since I'm graduating, and it will be pretty spectacular to boot. We have period instruments (think sackbutts, cornetti, theorbo) and the dress rehearsal today was very exciting. It's an effervescent piece, and there will be some pretty good performers involved, if I do say so myself! Please come if you can!
