Personally, I can say for certain that my own appetite will never die. And neither will Choral Chameleon's. In the process of rehearsing this particular music, we have all noted how the act of dilating the musical sensibilities of popular music, such as that of Madonna, serves the listener as a sort of amuse-bouche and prepares the palette to experience flavors and aromas that it never had before. This is the very essence of Choral Chameleon: changing with the times; changing with varied musical sensibilities ; comfortably doing all of it with a smile of reassurance to the listener.
I'm very grateful to all the amazing composers who have worked diligently to create this concert - to Joe Gregorio, Brian Mark and Mark Johnson for their stunning writing and arranging and to Conrad Susa for his beautiful "Serenade". In particular, I am deeply grateful to my friend and colleague, Michelle Gott a master of craft on the harp, and someone whose staggering technique and expression has often brought me to my very knees. It means the world to me that she has taken the time out of her busy performing schedule to create "Lyre Book Lush" together with us.
