Nice to see my friends mentioned!

With violinist Robin Mayforth and violist Patricia Whaley as soloists, the results in Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante were particularly fine.

and later …

Throughout, there were excellent contributions from every section in the orchestra — principal horn Meredith Brown, oboist Pamela Hakl, flutist Maria Tamburrino, and the cellos, led by Peter Gelfand, among them.

Susan LaBarr: Grace Before Sleep
USC Chamber Singers; Dr. Jo-Michael Scheibe, Conductor

Grace Before Sleep

How can our minds and bodies be
Grateful enough that we have spent,
Here in this generous room…
This evening of content?

Each one of us has walked through storm
And fled the wolves along the road;
But here the hearth is wide and warm,
And for this shelter and this light
Accept, O Lord, our thanks to-night.

SARA TEASDALE (1884-1933)
