A few days prior to launching session 4 of the LAB Choir this weekend, Ben met with a a group of Mt. Boucherie  high schoolers, here showing their lion faces in warmup.  They come from Kelowna, BC, on the Eastern side of BC, far from Vancouver. They had fun together doing solfege, gregorian chant, vocal technique, and harmonic overtone singing.


 We're getting ready for Saturday night's concert in the Oakland Cathedral about which several interesting articles have appeared, in San Jose Mercury News and on the San Francisco Classical Voice.

All of the composers will be present eventually - Peter Michaelides coming from New Mexico, Roxanna Panufnik from London, Ilya Ilyas lives here.  More soon.
