This month's interview is with conductor Amelia LeClair. She's the founder and director of Cappella Clausura. I am a singer in the group and we know each other well, so the interview is very easy-going! Cappella Clausura has a concert coming up this weekend. They (not me, this time around) will be singing a program called "La Donna, La Dame," featuring music by Cesis, Assandra, Cozzolani, Margaret of Austria and Jacquet de la Guerre. They will be at Gordon Chapel in Old South Church this Friday, May 1 at 7:30 pm; at the Episcopal Parish of the Messiah on Saturday, May 2 at 8:00 pm; and also at Grace Church in Salem next Sunday, May 10, at 7:30 pm.
The day before we did this interview, Amelia was interviewed for Here and Now on NPR. And it aired today - go to their website to listen! It's about 10 minutes long, and my interview is about 50 minutes long, and also they are professionals, so I recommend listening to their interview first. And I am singing in the first audio clip they play - that's me!
