UPDATE: Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra’s recording of Israel in Egypt has just been nominated for a GRAMMY! Check out the listing of nominees HERE (and scroll all the way to the bottom for the Classical categories).

There are some new recordings out for your purchase and pleasure. In September 2012, the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street celebrated the release of our recording of some incredible music by Elena Ruehr which can be purchased HERE as well as Handel’s Israel in Egypt on which lots of my unbelievably talented colleagues and I performed as both choristers and soloists (as is the tradition at Trinity). You can take a look and listen to that recording by clicking HERE. I also sang on a beautiful CD of Samuel Barber’s choral music with Conspirare and Craig Hella Johnson last year. This album is a treasure in so many ways, so check it out and add some heart-piercingly beautiful tunes to your collection by clicking HERE!

And, as a reminder, our CD of the complete Bach motets released for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 is available HERE or at the gift shops of St. Paul’s Chapel and Trinity Wall Street.

It’s that most wonderful time of year, and I’ve got three complete performances for you to choose from! First, Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra present Handel’s complete Messiah under the direction of Julian Wachner at Trinity Wall Street and at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. You can also tune into the webcast during the Trinity Church performance, or check it out later via the online archives. I’m so thrilled to be singing the “Angel Recits” and “Rejoice Greatly” again this year. For tickets and other info click HERE, and please check out our fantastic Wall Street Journal review from the 2011 performance. I’m also delighted to join Princeton Pro Musica for the first time as a soloist in their Messiah on December 16th in Trenton. I so look forward to working with my friend and colleague Ryan Brandau as he embarks upon his first season as Pro Musica director.

EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH 2012-2013 set to continue!

We have been in on tour now for almost a year with Phillip Glass and Robert Wilson’s Einstein on the Beach. Many thanks to our producer and all-around champion Linda Brumbach and the incredible staff at Pomegranate Arts! It’s going beautifully. Whereas this started as a yearlong commitment and we’ve just reached the anniversary of our first rehearsals in New York, it appears we will continue well through 2013. How exciting, challenging, and rewarding to be part of this masterpiece and to experience its warm reception in so many incredible cities around the world! On our most recent tour, our presenters in Mexico City were phenomenally attentive to our every need (Orly Beigel and crew, you rule!) and gave us all kinds of TLC, which was just what we needed heading into this busy time of year.

Don’t miss your remaining chances to see this completely unique piece of theater, music, and dance LIVE! Next stops include Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and Melbourne … more to come! If you’d like to learn more about the production and its history, check out The PBS documentary Einstein on the Beach: The Changing Image of Opera (1985) featuring Robert Wilson, Philip Glass, and Philip Glass’s adorable cat (wait for it) by clicking HERE. There have been lots of other wonderful clips, trailers, and interviews out there, as well as some highly illegal video, so feel free to peruse the world wide web for all kinds of current treats and tidbits.
