On 23 November 2022, I was interviewed by Mark Despotakis, PMEA Director of Public and Government Affairs, for his Take Note podcast. It was a great opportunity to spread the word to a wider audience about the joy of the Lititz Moravian Collegium Musicum and to describe what this successful research project involves! Thank you, Mark, for providing this opportunity!
In the remarks under the YouTube video, Marian Shatto mentions that I neglected to mention that we are fortunate to have a serpentist in the ensemble, Dr. Craig Kridel, who travels all the way from South Carolina to join us for our gatherings! Good point, Marian. Thank you, Craig, and sorry to have failed to mention you in the podcast and your significant role in making our ensemble completely unique!
Another point of interest: during the interview I promoted the t-shirt that Tell School students Kylie Calogero and Abigail Wieder designed and sold as a Chorale tour fundraiser this semester. Below is an image of design. Please know that this was completely their idea, though I supported them 110% and purchased a few for hoiday gift-giving! Thank you, Abigail and Kylie!!
