Rehearsals for Beethoven's Ninth Symphony Begin
The Falmouth Chorale had its first rehearsal with Maestro Simon. As usual, he was funny, demanding, helpful, encouraging, as they went through the "Ode to Joy" in German. Last night he had the first orchestra rehearsal and came home saying, "To have an orchestra like this on Cape Cod is really amazing!" The Simon Sinfonietta will obviously have another triumph on its hands on May 10th at Christ the King Church in Mashpee, MA. Tonight is the first Chatham Chorale rehearsal. I hope to take my Flip camera with me. It is so inspiring to listen to this symphony.
