A couple of tidbits on today's rep:
  • The orchestral Handel that opens the program includes a reworked chorus from Messiah.
  • Mendelssohn wrote his Magnificat inspired by similar works by J.S. and C.P.E. Bach... the year he turned 13.
  • Georgia's own Columbus State University Wind Ensemble plays Brooklyn Bridge after the 1:00 news, from their new CD Synergy, with conductor Robert Rumbelow and visiting clarinetist John Bruce Yeh.
