Dr. Chad Bennington kindly used my equipment to take photos of the choir performing in concert.
Most people rightly assume that the highlight for most musicians is giving concerts to live audiences. I confess that I do not quite fit that mold. I sing in concerts so that I will be allowed to sing in rehearsals. I much prefer just rehearsing, hearing lines again and again, each time in a new way, each time thinking of how to make it better, each time hoping to notice something new about the composer's thinking. There is also something mystical (magical?) about rehearsing late in the evening in this sanctuary, long after the faithful have finished their prayers and gone home, night has descended hours earlier, the doors are locked, and we can enjoy the beauty of choral music in this luscious acoustic by ourselves, no coughing, no applause, just us. That is a luxury. Here are a few shots of our rehearsal Friday evening, 7:00-10:00.
