NEXT UP: TAKE ONE/TAKE TWO
Two exciting one-night-only events take place in February.
Synopses of and ticketing for the two upcoming concerts, The Hardouin Masses, Vol. 2 and St. Martin’s and the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, are below but if you’d like to read Maestro Krueger’s thoughts on these two fabulous programs, click HERE.
TAKE ONE: THE HARDOUIN MASSES VOL. 2
Full Ensemble, A Public Recording Session
After the issuing of St. Martin’s first commercially released recording, The Complete A Cappella Masses of Henri Hardouin, Vol. 1, on the Naxos label the choir is now recording Vol. 2, and you are invited to sit in on one of the recording sessions. This is not only a historic event – these masses have not been performed in over 200 years, much less recorded! – but a fascinating look at how a professional choir makes a recording. Details of microphone placement, ambient noise, editing between multiple takes and other recording techniques will be discussed and demonstrated by Maestro Krueger and the choir.
TAKE TWO: ST. MARTIN’S CHAMBER CHOIR
THE SANTA FE DESERT CHORALE
The renowned Santa Fe Desert Chorale, conducted by Artistic Director Joshua Habermann, will be making its first Denver appearance ever on Tuesday, Feb 24, on the same concert as St. Martin’s Chamber Choir! The Desert Chorale (in which Maestro Krueger sang from 1993-97, and where he met his wife in 1996), has been selected for a keynote appearance at the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Salt Lake City. In Denver they will present their convention program “Dancing the Mystery,” a mix of spoken word, sacred music and transcendental (and universal) meditations, while St. Martin’s will add works of its own in keeping with this theme of mystical music-making. This is an exceedingly rare opportunity to hear two distinguished professional chamber choirs on the same program!
