We sang "The Boy Whose Father was God" last night in San Jose, and tonight at San Francisco's Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill, where we come to do sacred programs of this sort. Eric, almost recovered from his laryngitis, was ready to sing, so Laura McLellan and her cello didn't have join us.
The concert sold out and was given a very enthusiastic response, as at the other venues. Ilyas Ilya, composer of the Aramaic Lord's Prayer was there and Roxanna Panufnik, composer of "Let Me In" about a miracle performed by the child Jesus, flew in from London for two days. As we're having a mini-heatwave, and as she had never been to the West Coast before, she took a minute to go see the Golden Gate Bridge from Crissy Field
and then to have dinner with our Commissioning Club and hear the concert. We hope she was pleased - she seemed to be. After the concert with Jace and our board member Peggy Skornia:
We'll turn up in New York for "Out of this World" at the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Wednesday.
