This link came to my attention today. Jennifer Lester, the founding music director of The Seraphim Singers and a friend of mine, was interviewed about her 15 year tenure at the helm of Seraphim. It’s a great read and I recommend it for you music nerds out there, and I know you’re out there. Also, there’s a concert coming up. More about that after the jump.
Please join The Seraphim Singers for the first performance of our 16th season.

Though German Baroque choral composition reached its culmination with Bach it nonetheless was rediscovered and transformed by Mendelssohn in the 19th century and revitalized by Reger and Distler in the 20th. The Seraphim Singers explore the depth, diversity, and virtuosity of this rich musical heritage in a concert promising to enrich and delight.
