We're turning our attention to education these days.  After preparing with Ragnar Bohlin the tutti numbers for the National Youth Choral Festival -  by Larsson, Rossini, and Zajick among others- we will plunge next Wednesday into the extreme intensity of that 5 days with our l0 visiting choirs.  Today we had a master class with the choir from the Kirby School in Santa Cruz which included a visit with us on the Bay Area tour.  They were very impressive and we enjoyed the time we had with them.  Plans are also heating up for our second Youth Choral Festival hosted by Palm Desert High School in Southern California which will happen in early April.
