And in other news...

I signed my letter of agreement on Wednesday to take over as the new conductor of the South Hadley Chorale in South Hadley, MA, which, I should point out, ought not be confused with the South Hadley Canal. The Chorale website has not yet been updated to reflect my signing on, but will be shortly, I'm sure. Huzzah and huzzah and bring on the Bruckner (Mass no.2, in e minor, that is - bizarre little piece accompanied by an orchestral wind section but no strings).

Tomorrow I depart (sadly) the good people of Norfolk (the Nor-Folk if you will), and am off to the 44th International Summer Course for New Music in Darmstadt on Friday. I was just glancing at the schedule of events and was thrilled to notice that Opera Cabal's favorite guest soprano, Tony Arnold, will be on hand to perform Kurtag's Kafka Fragments (among other things). Personally, I'll be studying with Lucas Vis, and anticipate running amuck and causing mass confusion amongst the Germans with my eerily similar cohort, Nick Deyoe.
