Heralding New Music and Nurturing It
Joel Sachs (HGC ’61) Directs the New Juilliard Ensemble and the Focus! Festival
Several of Joel Sachs‘s tour-mates from the FET ’61 sent along information about this article in the January 16, 2015 New York Times. Dr. Loring Conant, Jr. ’61, HGC President during the 1961 Far East Tour, said, “…this is an eloquent example of the maturation of a talented musician whose origins are grounded in the many rich experiences and opportunities as an undergraduate accompanist to the Harvard Glee Club.”
Peter Strauss ’61 (manager 1960-61) sends along the news that his New York City, Upper West Side chamber choir, Florilegium, will be singing evensong at St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York, Sunday Feb. 22 at 5, and a concert of Americana at Trinity Lutheran Church, West 100th St. east of Amsterdam Avenue at 4 pm Sunday, March 8. There is room for more bassi (seconds especially) and tenors in the group; find out more and hear us sing, he says, at http://florilegiumchamberchoir.org.
