The Vespers performances by Piffaro and The Crossing gets a mention by John Lane in the Weekly Press, “Philadelphia’s Community Newspaper,” with particular emphasis on the pre-concert lectures. Donald Nally and I will discuss the work 45 minutes before each concert, so that’s 7:15 for the 8pm Saturday 1/7 concert at Old St. Joseph’s, 3:15 for the 4pm Sunday 1/8 concert at the Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill. The New York City concert doesn’t make this paper, but that’ll be a 6:45 talk before the 7:30 Monday 1/9 concert at Park Ave. Christian Church, NYC.
