It's recording day! Another exciting day was filled with Tavener, Whitacre, Barber, and more at Georgetown Preparatory School's beautiful Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes. We also had a new and exciting addition in our session today: To bolster our low basses this time around, we invited a mentor of our founding members, Mr. James L. Turk (lovingly known as "Coach"), who was the high school director of many of our tenors and basses at DeMatha High School. He was such a treat to sing with, and provided much inspiration for us all in speaking with us throughout the day.
Keep an eye out for new releases from both this session and our last session. Recording projects are piling up and we're so excited to release them to you! While you wait for that, enjoy some scenes (and Snapchats) from the day...
Today marks the first rehearsal of our Winter Season! Among many new exciting things (new members, new recording spaces, new challenges), we are most excited about our new music. This season includes many exciting pieces, including Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei, John Tavener's Song for Athene, Eric Whitacre's Alleluia, Aleksandr Sheremetev's Now ye Heavenly Powers, and the second-ever recording of Tavener's Mother and Child.
We had such a wonderful time performing for our largest audience yet at the Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes today. Your support for Lux, for the arts, and for a bunch of college kids making music for fun has floored us all time and time again. Keep an eye out for news on our album, including much of this program. Thank you so much, and we can't wait to see you next time!
