I was given the opportunity to sing with the women’s chorus Amuse in tonight’s program of sacred music by contemporary women composers of the ex-British colonies (US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia). We expect one of the composers, Catherine Aks, to be in the audience; will she notice that we have moved the placement of the first sopranos’ final “ia” to the last note from the next to last?
As an inducement, I suggest that in this grim political season you will enjoy hearing us singing fiercely about casting the powerful out of their seats.
It’s at St. Ignatius of Antioch at 8, but I have to be there at 6:30 — so I’d better get moving. Send good thoughts for my high notes holding out through the program.
