An uplifting experience
>

On Friday, we were treated to a wonderful experience, James Conlon's interpretation of Dante's Inferno as composed by Franz Liszt, whilst at the head of the San Francisco Symphony.

My son's choral group, Ragazzi,  one of three groups performing, played the part of angeli and through their singing, raised the spirits of everyone in the concert hall.

Earlier this year Mr. Conlon impressed with his discussion of conducting and music in the U.S. while on the Charlie Rose show. Mr. Conlon is the Director of Ravinia, America's oldest outdoor musical festival near Chicago, and is taking over as the musical director of the Los Angeles Opera in the Fall.
