Tomorrow I conduct a concert with the Minnesota Orchestra, an ensemble with whom I have a titled position (“Principal Conductor of Live at Orchestra Hall” – I know, a mouthful!), an ensemble I’ve been working with for nearly 15 years, an ensemble full of friends.
Tomorrow I conduct a concert with my friends for the first time since March.
I’m still working through what all of this means, and I’ve not really worked up to putting it into words – I’ll save that for the next post.
What I can say is that the stage always feels firm beneath my feat, the light is always dazzling, the sound always enveloping, and the deep humanity of what we do always palpable.
If you can join me live o Friday, December 18 at 8 pm Central Time, it will be broadcast on Twin Cities PBS and live streaming on the Orchestras website.
