From the Artistic Director and Conductor
Dear Friends of The Bach and Handel Chorale,
As we plan to celebrate our 30th Anniversary with two wonderful concerts, it is hard for me to believe that we have come this far, especially in a region where choral music, especially Baroque choral music, is an extremely hard sell. It also tells me that I am not 28 years old any longer! I am grateful for these past 30 years and it has been awesome to see the Bach and Handel Chorale survive, even with the "ups and downs" associated with decreased funding and changing membership, due to work transfers, time constraints and sadly, death of members.
I consider myself blessed to have worked with so many awesome people, from singers to orchestra members and board members to government officials. All have worked diligently to make sure that the Bach and Handel Chorale and Festival Orchestra have survived. I am so proud of our members, our board, our advertisers, restaurant partners and patrons. Without these individuals, we could not have survived.
I urge you to attend all of our concerts during the 2013 – 2014 season, including many Christmas Concerts, our 30th Anniversary Gala performance, with Festival Orchestra and the premier of a new composition that I have composed in celebration of this joyous event.
