A letter from our Artistic Director, Garrick Comeaux
Introduction to Season XI
I was recently asked to return to Rome this fall to teach choral studies for one year at Marymount International School. I will have five choirs (Middle School and High School) to direct and will make music with the fine staff and educators of this school operated by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. I am confident that these Reformation Anniversary concerts will demonstrate how fortunate I am to have such fine musicians as these. I am grateful. I will return for Christmas, in time to rehearse and sing in the Epiphany Concerts on January 6 and 7.
I would like to express my personal gratitude to the board of Consortium Carissimi for their tireless efforts and dedication to the great success of our organization. I am grateful to all the members of the ensemble whose keen interest in this repertory permit the Twin Cities to regularly hear music so seldom performed today, and so well if I may say.
I would especially like to thank all of you who so enthusiastically attend our live concerts and listen to our recordings.
