The students from Detmold are here in Minneapolis and we are cooking on the Britten War Requiem. Last night the students in the choir got together with the University of Minnesota University Singers, Kantorei, and the Macalester Concert Choir got together and rehearsed through the piece. Today student conductors and singers got together and read through some American composers' pieces. Tonight will begin one of three rehearsals with the University of Minnesota Orchestra and Detmold Hochschule chamber orchestra putting the piece together! I hope you all are excited as we are to engage with this amazing work!
Here we go!
