The War Requiem has both the Catholic requiem mass text and poems by Wilfred Owen. Here are the program notes.
Next week it's on to Dvorak, Bolcom, and Barber.
Since there's no way to post about everything that's been going on, I'll leave you with a few of my favorite things:
the view of the Chicago skyline every day at orchestra rehearsal
being greeted by smiling faces and friendly "hello"'s by this orchestra
sharing doTERRA with someone in the orchestra and watching their face light up as the Deep Blue blend alleviated their ankle pain
friends getting engaged!!!!!!!
playing amazing music with even more amazing people
going to a softball game and getting amazing seats, and getting signatures from people I have watched play since I was a little girl!
Laughter and fun times on orchestra breaks
lessons with a great person and teacher
the list could go on and on... Chicago is a great city and I'm so happy to be here.
