Virtual Feast of Lights
This past semester has been a whirlwind. Online classes posed very difficult and unseen challenges that an in-person modality simply does not have. On the bright side, it allowed for many new opportunites that would have never happened if we were in person. For example, this year's Feast of Lights was completely online. Never before in the 73 years of Feast has anything like this happened before! But with this new online platform, this year's Feast was completely different – certainly one you wouldn't want to miss. Combining recordings from choirs under the direction of all three of the Feast's directors: J. William Jones, Jeff Rickard, and Nicholle Andrew; along with virtual choir recordings featuring alumni, this Feast is one I will never forget.
Luckily for you, if you haven't yet purchased a ticket to see the Feast of Lights, you can still buy one! For $20 you will have access to watch the performance as many times as you'd like until January 3rd. It was truly a meditative and healing experience, as it is every year, and I truly hope you will get the chance to experience it too. It was particularly special for me, since this year was also the premiere of a piece written by the new composition professor, Andre Myers, who I have been studying with for the past few months. What a lovely piece, with a beautiful message and text.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and I will be posting soon about the Redlands' Composition Studio's Green Orange Recital coming up in a few days!
