No moss under these feet

So… out of the plane and into the car, no traffic through the Midtown Tunnel, got call “Come to a concert!”. I dropped my stuff at the rectory, got into a subway, and a few minutes later I am in a seat in the very back row of Carnegie Hall.

Bach’s Christmas Oratorio is about to begin.

    Wow! I am definitely envious:-) I always love to listen (0n a CD on my very nice stereo system) to Bach’s Christmas Oratorio at this time of year…

    I was planning on going to this tonight. Unfortunately illness earlier this week forced to postpone my Christmas errands to today. I didn’t get done until around 9 PM. *Sigh* Could you maybe leave a brief review? I am thinking of auditioning for this choir and I wanted to check them out.

  6. Lirioroja: They are in serious need of tenors and sopranos who are not on social security. It was a serviceable performance of dedicated amateurs. And of course the Oratorio is very Lutheran. It sure has its moments, though. I am glad I went.

    Oooo, you are soooo lucky there, Father Z!
    From the plane and into Carnegie Hall-very cool!
    Have a great time in NYC!

  8. Ahhh – the nosebleed section. Actually, the best place to be. I prefer the nosebleed section for football games to see formations, but this is my first look at an orchestra from a bird’s eye view. Nice!

    Some like sitting so close to the orchestra. I like being far enough away for the music to mix well.

    The nosebleed section at Carnegie Hall is definitely not for those afraid of heights…..
