Wow…it was a big week, but ended with a fantastic and moving performance of Opera highlights and inspirations. My first time working with the Russian violinist Haik Kazazyan, who was nothing short of a dynamo, and a pleasure to work with too. Add to that our four singers who absolutely brought the house down in repertoire from Bizet to Verdi and everything in between. Something for everyone on this program and I was so proud of the orchestra, great musicality and great listening to create one of the most powerful and beautiful performances in recent memory. Bravo to all involved.
