Hello oboe world and friends! It’s been a while, but we wanted to share some oboe humor with you during this tough time, so a few ESM oboe alumni and current students came together with the help of the internet to put this together from our homes all across the country. Hope it gives you a laugh! #itsgonnabeMay

Because there is never too much Bach. And this time you also get fourteen violinists!

Here’s Sean! Take a listen! He is located in San Jose.

Such a huge loss. He was an amazing musician, and any time he came here was a true delight as well.

Tikey Zes taught at San Jose State when I was there, so this was a delight to see (and hear).

From the YouTube page:
Dear Singers, Supporters, Friends and Family:

AXIOS Music is thrilled to announce the premiere performance of the Soma Christou Virtual Choir!

During the midnight Easter Liturgy, scores of Orthodox choirs sing Tikey Zes’s arrangement of the Paschal communion hymn, “Soma Christou.” As a tribute to Tikey and his music, choir members from around the United States helped AXIOS Music create the first-ever Orthodox virtual choir. We chose to record “Soma Christou” because of its singular place in the annals of Greek Orthodox choral music in the United States.

It was a joy working with all of our participants — our deepest gratitude for your contributions!

Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen!
