I can't believe my first season with the Sacramento Choral Society & Schola Cantorum is almost over! I can't believe how much I missed being in choir, and I get the best of both worlds: a "big" choir that performs with the orchestra and gets to do the big symphonic works, and a "little" church choir that has the biggest and most complex repertoire of any group I've ever been a part of.

Okay, here's the concert rundown: the Sacramento Choral Society is performing Mozart's "Requiem" and Morten Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna" this Saturday, May 10th, at the Sacramento Community Center Theater at 8pm (pre-show talk at 7pm), as a preview for our LA Disney Hall debut on Friday, June 27th.

The link above has lots more info on both performances, plus a podcast and the article in the Sacramento Bee.

Tickets for this Saturday's performance can be found here, and tickets for the LA concert can be found here.
I'm really excited about getting to sing in Disney Hall, all the pictures I've seen are just stunning. And the acoustics are supposed to be fabulous. 

Schola Cantorum's Choral Masterworks spring concert is Sunday, June 15th, at 3pm in Sacramento, at Sacred Heart Church. Tickets will be available at the door, and will most likely be $15 general, $10 students/seniors.

When I get home tonight I'll post samples of the Mozart & Lauridsen for anyone who wants them; kind of as a preview.

The concert was fantastic...I don't know why I wasn't expecting it, but there were lasers, fire and fireworks involved...and we got a Neil Peart drum solo! Complete with the rotating drum kit and every percussion instrument imaginable. If there were such a thing as a virtuoso drummer, Neil Peart would be it, I swear.

They did a lot of songs off the new album, Snakes & Arrows, but I liked them, so that was okay. And they used a South Park clip to introduce "Tom Sawyer" that was hilarious.

Okay, that's all for now, off to see the family!
