Thank you to everyone who came out and heard the music on Sunday the 11th! You were such a respectful and appreciative audience, and it made it so much more special to look out and see those kind faces smiling!
This was also easily the largest audience ever at the Cathedral's concert series. If you didn't get to talk to Eric for very long (or even if you did), please feel free to send any of your thoughts or comments on the Contact page. For example, which pieces were your favorites? Your feedback helps us find ways to make the concert experience better.
There were eight world premieres at the concert, and several more premieres of new versions of pieces by Eric, and Bach. Over a dozen musicians participated, including many from the St. Olaf College Orchestra. There wasn't a big enough recognition for the musicians' efforts, but all your preparations and practicing were so appreciated! The results that Sunday were very impressive, especially considering that we had fairly little time to practice together before the concert.
The concert was at the first Episcopal Cathedral built in the USA (shown here), designed by the architect of the Smithsonian and St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York. Plenty of you have already commented about what a beautiful venue it was for a concert, and the videos look amazing!
