John of the Cross a pretty famous poem called dark night of the soul it's just very inspiring to me because it's very it's a very passionate poem and very spiritual so as a prelude we're going to do another piece of mind called the ground which is a very melodic sort of romantic piece that is adapted from my sunrise mass for choir and string orchestra that's a DC NY I did a couple months ago with Jamie Mathers conducting here in New York at Carnegie Hall as conductor I've been drawn to OHS music since my first hearing of it many years ago with those music 'it's his voice his language his style and I have such great respect for him as an artist the review of auditions begins now I would love to see you next gen 2017 on stage at Lincoln Center
