Photos from the Ljubljana Concert

Thanks to Franzi, here are some photos of our rehearsal with Damijan Močnik and concert in St. Nicholas Cathedral, Ljubljana. Franzi unfortunately wasn’t feeling well (get better soon!), but she sat in the audience and took some excellent pictures:

As Darcy said in her post, singing this concert was really a pleasure! It was a great experience to meet Damijan Močnik, the composer of one of the pieces we performed both here and in our spring concert – “Blagri,” a Slovenian setting of the Beatitudes text. We learned after the concert that another Slovenian composer, Jakob Jež, whose piece “Igraj Kolce” we performed, also attended our concert! This concert felt like a fortunate confluence of great energy, a beautiful space, an amazing conductor, and special circumstances, and it was an honor to sing here tonight.

    “Jakob Jež … also attended our concert” gets another ‘eeeee!’ from me.
