Email from our President, Zoey Savale, May 20, 2019:
"Hello, singers -
Ah, LIVE music... It’s full of surprises. Part of the special thrill of a live performance is the “walking a tightwire” element. Almost anything can happen... and this season, some unusual things did!
And yet, both of our concerts were really great. Thanks to Stanley’s excellent planning and direction, Dennis’ smooth, skilled and very professional subbing, and Gail's ability to catch us when we stray, we had outstandingly strong leadership. Add to that your own individual hard work and cooperation, and it all worked together! Thank you! Zoey"
"This season’s repertoire, directed by Stanley Curtis and accompanied by Gail Johnson, literally represents 1,000 years of song. The Cambridge Songs Suite No. 2 was composed in 2018, using 11th century lyrics (whose original tunes have been lost) to create an exciting and gorgeous modern cantata. The Warwick Chorale will join the composer’s own choruses to sing the world premiere of this work at Carnegie Hall on June 10, 2019."
