FYI for all interested in LU and great music, there will be a webcast on LU's quadrennial rendition of Handel's Messiah tonight.
here is Dean Pertl talking about the technology behind this This Is Lawrence - Live From The Chapel - YouTube
and the link to tonight's webcast of Messiah Webcasts - Lawrence University
Also, there just came available a playlist of LU's last performance of Messiah in Dec 2008 from an unofficial recording by an audience member. The playlist orders the somewhat scattered video segments into one collection. gosh , listening to this again, even while I write this, is a goose pimple experience, a beautiful blending of different voices and the full orchestra.
After my daughter, now a senior, heard the LSO , that kind of sealed the deal of her college choice in her mind/gut, I think. She is not a con member, but she was able to play violin in this great Lawrence Sym Orch. Lawrence University Messiah Dec 2008 - YouTube
