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."
