Chorale Bel Canto
Sunday, September 7, 2008

In May, I attended a concert by the Orange County Catholic Chorale and the Meistersingers, who performed Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass.  I was very moved and inspired by the concert.  As I read and listened to the words of the mass, it really lifted me to a place of worship, and I decided at that time that I really wanted to sing with a group like this.  I love the full chorus with orchestra, the classical repertoire, the quality of the music, and the fact that their focus is on sacred texts.  I spoke with the director of the OCCC, and learned that their next season isn't going to start until January 2009, so I then decided to contact the Chorale Bel Canto, which is based in Whittier.  Yesterday I auditioned for Chorale Bel Canto, and was accepted.  They have an exciting season lined up!  Here is a rundown of their upcoming concerts:

I'm really looking forward to this.  Rehearsals start on Monday night.

Thus says the Lord:
"Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness,
justice, and righteousness in all the earth,
For in these I delight," declares the Lord.
— Jeremiah 9:23-24
