Long Live Fair Oriana: a Success!

Yesterday’s concert was a glorious success! Thank you to all whose hard work and support made it all possible: singers, donors, volunteers, audience, friends and family. We were all so pleased to see such a large audience turn out for the first concert. Music is made for sharing. The success of our first concert can be measured in the joy expressed by both the singers and the audience. We all had a great time!

For those of you who want to relive a little bit of the concert, and for our friends near and far who were not able to join us, here is a small sample of what we sang. This recording is John Tavener’s The Lamb, a setting of a poem from William Blake’s Songs of Innocence. Many audience members reported that this was their favorite piece on the program.

  1. Dear Dr. Zobel,
    So very happy to see the success of the chamber choir. It was a beautiful performance. “The Lamb” was truly beautiful, but my favorite was “I Love My Love”. I sang this piece in a group called “The Choral Project at Cedarhurst” under the direction of John McGhee in Mt.Vernon, IL. Congratulations on your success!

    • Thanks, Kathy! In fact, the Holst “I love my love” was the other one that people talked about a lot. We’ll get that recording up soon!
