Es ist vollbracht!
It is accomplished!

Der Held aus Juda siegt mit Macht
The hero from Judah triumphs in his might
Und schließt den Kampf.
and brings the strife to an end.
Es ist vollbracht!

I hope symphony doesn’t mind that I’m “borrowing” their photo. I’ll post this, but I’ll also go ask them! In any case, I now see who our conductor is: I didn’t have a name before!

I spotted the photo first on the Mercury News article.
