Default Carmina Burana performance

Yesterday, I was in the chorus of the wonderful Carl Orff work, Carmina Burana. It is powerful music, exhilarating, exhausting and emotional.

Our conductor, Matthew Hazelwood, died a week ago Friday of a sudden heart attack at age 57, and we scrambled to find a replacement, which we did in Maestro Eric Stark of Butler University in Indiana, who understood our sadness and emotional state.

Those of you who know this piece and know the intensity of it, can appreciate our sense of accomplishment. The Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra, the Great Lakes Chamber Singers (of which I am a member) and a chorus of over 100 made it a special event.

Our replacement conductor said, "We are the first to offer this glorious music to Maestro Hazelwood in Heaven". We were honored and humbled.

A truly special experience of my life.

What a tribute to your conductor, Matthew Hazelwood, who passed too young. To have this special day, of acomplishment is a great thing.
