This was a wonderful concert. The program was modern and included familiar and unfamiliar pieces. The orchestra, chorus and soloists including the young male treble from the Cathedral Boys' choir were all superb. And it is always a treat at see Norman Scribner conduct and especially since he will retire after this season.
In the season opener of his final season, retiring founder and artistic director Norman Scribner will conduct some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th Century that hold special meaning for Choral Arts.
