Today, after a season of rehearsals and an especially tricky rehearsal schedule (thanks to Mother Nature and several Nor’easters that descended upon our area) we in the Masterwork Chorus, under the direction of Chris Shepard, are primed to wish Leonard Bernstein a Happy 100th Birthday, by presenting selections from his vast catalogue of diverse works.
I am always nervous with anticipation on the day of a performance, and with music firmly embedded in my brain, I hang my choral dress on the bedroom hook, buff my black shoes, and ensure that my music is place, in proper concert order, in my black folder.
I invite you to share in the concert and the post-performance “Birthday” celebration. Enjoy!
