“Thank you, Dr. Miller and company, for one of the most transcendental and uplifting sacred music experiences of my entire life.” – Lindsay Koob, in a concert review for the Charleston City Paper
And thank you, for a wonderful review of our concert. You can read the entire article here.
We had another spectacular rehearsal with Dr. Flummerfelt today, where he once again led us to deeper depths within the music. He admonished us gently only if we ever sang too sweetly, if we ever lost our ‘humanness’. In the Verdi Stabat Mater, there is a beautiful solo for the altos, and there is a descending passage where he is encouraging us to make the sound raw and move it, for just a moment, into the chest register. As a low alto, I have to say that these two measures are among my favorite to sing – they are so powerful! Dr. Flummerfelt put our performance into perspective – we will be singing with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Chorus and he reminded us that we will bring the Westminster Choir sound to the music, but the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Chorus will bring their life experiences. For these, there is no substitute.
