The Crossing has been rehearsing this for weeks, but I attended a rehearsal of The Consolation of Apollo for the first time last night.
I don’t know how to say it without repeating myself. I am simply amazed by these singers, amazed by Donald, amazed that I am so fortunate to have the chance to offer music to them. They re-create it and with unmatched artistry, with understanding, and with love offer it back to me. I’m amazed.
This Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Come, see, hear them. More about the piece here.
Commissioned by Eric Owens for The Crossing, Donald Nally, conductor, The Consolation of Apollo premieres at Princeton University, Institute for Advanced Studies Wolfensohn Hall, on October 10th and 11th, 2014, and at The Church of the Holy Trinity, Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, on October 12th.
