Some Concert Recordings: Allerton Vocal Chamber Music Festival

So...I finally got around to learning how to upload video onto YouTube, which means that then I can post them here! I am so excited to see what you think of these.

What we have here is Woodstock High School. I got to conduct them at the Allerton Vocal Chamber Music Festival in February of this year. (I know it took me awhile....) We spent a weekend together (Friday night and Saturday morning) and worked on two songs for several rehearsals. This is a recording of their performance Saturday afternoon. Enjoy!

Johannes Brahms: "Nachtwache no. 1"

Sergei Rachmoninoff: "Bogoroditsye Djevo"

Also!! I have started a new blog to post all of the videos of me conducting/rehearsing! Please check it out! mortensenconductor.blogspot.com
