Magnolia Chorale, Class of 2017
I was singing with Columbia Basin College's choral group, DeserTones. We were invited to share the Carnegie Hall stage with three other chamber groups from around the United States to do Lauridsen's Les Chansons des Roses (Rose Songs), which is five movements with lyrics from the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. The fifth and final movement is Dirait-on. Every time I get the opportunity to sing any of the songs from this song cycle I will remember the time I stood on the Carnegie Hall stage (a dream come true to any singer). I look forward to performing this song again!
