Alex Ross--The Rest Is Noise: Orbiting

It seems this blog has been mentioned in more than just one place. And this time, by the music critic of the NEW YORKER.

Check it out:
Alex Ross: The Rest Is Noise: Orbiting: "Philip Copeland, doing the same to the life of a university choral conductor (with sub-links to many members of the University of Alabama at Birmingham chorus). All contribute to the great work of Demystification. Blogging can show composers, singers, and critics as living, thinking beings, alert to the flow of twenty-first-century culture, not as the anachronistic antisocial freaks we actually are."

How 'bout that? I've been contributing to the great work of Demystification and I didn't even know it. Good Lord, no wonder I've been so tired lately.

Also mentioned was a young soprano, Anne Carolyn Bird, who is trying to make it in New York. She's got a blog that is pretty interesting . . . some facinating reads for you if you have a moment to look. I especially enjoyed "The Average Audition."

Just to clarify,

We weren't mention IN the New Yorker, we were mentioned on the blog of the music critic who writes FOR the New Yorker.

Hey! We will be in the New Yorker soon enough. Dr. Copeland, you have a great thing going here with the choir blog. Im glad to see it getting recognition on such a large scale. I just hope all the people who come and visit this blog dont mosey over to my sight and see all my ramblings. I appologize in advance for those of you who do. By the way, do you know if any of our instrumentalists have any blogs? Ill try to ask around and find out. God bless!
