4. Nice! I've performed it too (in the orchestra)

The Qui Sedas was always one of my favorite movements

5. It's a great work.

I wish I could still sing like that but I have lost all of my range past A4. Back then I could get up to F#.

I auditioned and was accepted as a tenor. My coach discovered that my falsetto was strong and clear so we worked together to strengthen it over the summer. I returned to school as a newly minted counter tenor and performed a couple of Dowland lute songs and "O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion" I found my "voice" Mellismatic phrases were my jam.

My favorite memory was performing the recitative and aria Che Faro Senza Euridice.

I didn't continue studying music after undergrad.

3. It's with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra

Conducted by Nicholas McGegan, who's known as a great baroque conductor.

6. Amusing story from last night...

So we're walking across the street going to Orchestra Hall and we're with a gentleman who had a suit-bag over his shoulder. He mentioned about how the rehearsals went well and he was looking forward to the evening's performance. I assumed he was a musician and commented that the conductor was well known for his baroque concerts and he says, "I'm the conductor!" We ran into him at halftime in the donor lounge and he said, "Aha, we meet again!" Super nice guy!
