I have the privilege of working with The SymphoNYChorus of New York, New York, and The New West Symphony & Chorus of Calgary, Alberta. My good friend Henric Ideström conducts them both, and I have recorded albums for both groups. In this time of self isolation, we brought together 70 singers from both groups

I would wait to post this for a Sunday Morning or Evening post, but … well … I just can’t wait. It’s just lovely.

Billy Joel’s And So It Goes, arranged by Bob Chilcott, is beautifully done here by The King’s Singers and 732 members of the “Stay At Home Choir”.

Gorgeous! And the signing … well … something about sign language hits my heart. It’s just so beautiful.
