You know how every little girl dreams of being a princess and marrying Prince Charming?
Well, if you can't be a princess, be a singer (or a violin virtuoso or something). And if you can't marry Prince Charming, marry a conductor. Then the two of you can at least have a reason to look like Prince and Princess Charming every once in a while.
I had a friend take these photos after the concert tonight. Said friend is not a photographer, and even my big ole' camera can't do magic when it's on auto. But, it's as good as it gets, and I promised pictures, so here they are, even though I look really weird in the first one. Not sure what I'm doing with my face there, but at least you can see my fabulous gown. I'm thinking my red carpet poses need lots of work.
The concert went pretty well. I am not going to subject you to the whole thing (the soprano has small solos throughout) because it is kind of long. I will share the Benedictus with you. It is a trio of the three soloists (soprano, tenor, bass) and then the choir comes in at the very end.
Just click on play and enjoy!
