Golden State Pops Orchestra (First Rehearsal)
I'll be conducting the Golden State Pops Orchestra in a performance of Baba Yetu on May 16th, 2009 at the Warner Grand Theatre. It's been awhile since I've been up on the podium, so I'm definitely looking forward to the experience.
The orchestra sounded great at the first rehearsal (held at El Segundo High School, in case you're wondering why there are lockers in the background). Next week we'll be adding the choir, so that will be the true test.
Maestro Steven Allen Fox is leading this first rehearsal. Just looking at the picture makes me think I really need to get a haircut.
