It's nice that Gabe is so sunny about the prospect of getting the assembled high school singers and the orchestra and Frederica Von Stade and us seated on the stage of Davies Symphony Hall. He's holding Ben's chart of how it will work. The big smile may be because that's actually not one of his responsibilities! His are singing, teaching, and merchandise.

Meanwhile, Jace practices the celeste part which he will play in Daniel-Lesur's "Annonciation." We will give the American premiere of this work at the gala concert on Monday the 29th at Davies Symphony Hall - Matt conducting, Frederica Von Stade narrating, and a combined orchestra and a chorus of 464.
