Congratulations to Crystal Mitchell, who, in a comment on our last post, reported that her boyfriend had popped the question during our Chicago Christmas concert on Monday. We have to wonder which song put him in the mood to propose! Last summer we recorded some beautiful music about weddings we'll release before too long ( including Eric Whitacre's "This Marriage") so maybe Crystal and her fiance can use it at theirs! Now we're on a plane headed for San Francisco. Tomorrow night we'll be in Stanford's magnificent Memorial Church where our California Christmas concerts traditionally begin. That's also when the concert is recorded for broadcast on public radio stations starting probably on the l8th.
