Awesome to have Eric Whitacre visit our blog, isn't it? Again, thanks to Delia for stepping out and inviting him to read our thoughts about his piece.
NOW . . . .
This week another important person will visit you, and this time in the rehearsal hall. I have no doubt that you will be on your best behavior and that you will learn much. I regret that I will not be with you to learn from Dr. Jordan. I look forward to hear what he concentrated on during his time with you . . . it will make us all better musicians.
I have always believed that it is the person in front of the choir that makes the greatest difference in a choir's accomplishment, sound, and musicality. Dr. J is the one that taught me this . . . I think you will see what I mean.
So, I'm off to LA early in the morning. I'll be presenting a session entitled "Simplifying the Conductor's Lifestyle: Making Technology Work for You."
You can read or see the presentation here. I've also got a links page to information I reference in the presentation. Enjoy!
