Ack! Was July really our last post? We’ve been so busy we’ve been neglecting the blog!
So, in the spirit of “what I did last summer (and fall)”, here’s what we’ve been up to:
- we listened to a lot of really wonderful singers at our September auditions and took on two fabulously talented singers! Welcome soprano Carla Fisk and bass Tyler Thomas!
- We welcomed our Auriel Scholar, Class of 2015! Caleb Eick is a senior at the College of Saint Rose, pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, where he studies with Dr. Susan Harwood. Caleb brings so much enthusiasm, passion and talent to our group! We’re very happy to have him aboard. First on Caleb’s agenda was assisting in the preparation of program notes for our first concert, and he did a great job!
- we prepared and rehearsed and presented our first concert of the season, “This Other Eden: Music of The English Masters”, and it was glorious! We’re so grateful to the large, appreciative audience and the wonderful folks at Immaculate Conception Church in Glenville, NY, who made us feel so very welcome.
Here are a few pics from rehearsals for that concert:
And here’s a bit of video from rehearsal:
From now on, we promise we won’t get so far behind on the blog!
