Attended a great performance yesterday afternoon by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chamber Chorus (ASOCC). Rachmaninov’s Vespers was apparently a favorite of Robert Shaw’s – the fifth movement in particular or so I hear – and this was the ASOCC’s first fully a cappella performance in Symphony Hall. I’m very glad I didn’t miss it.
The performance was also one of the first in a series of ASO performances celebrating the centennial of Robert Shaw’s birth. Per our previous post, there is a long list of celebratory activities to enjoy. Including the premiere of our documentary on April 24th.
Now that you really don’t want to miss.
