~~~ OUR WORLD SINGS SEASON ENDS ~~~
Waukesha Choral Union Excites with
“The World’s A Stage”
In his last performance with the chorus, Maestro Ernest Brusubardis III directed a lively, robust repertoire of Broadway and world famous operettas to a full house at the beautiful Humphrey Memorial Chapel on the campus of Carroll University! Ernie shared these heartfelt sentiments with the membership following the emotional and tearful evening:
I believe this is the first time that a choir has prepared a song to sing for me. We should have renamed the concert from Abba to Verdi. It was a beautiful sentiment along with the flowers and the card. Thank you. But most of all, thank you for the music. Last night it was apparent to everyone that the music we made was from the heart and soulful. That is an experience that keeps us coming back for more. I am grateful that such busy people as yourselves are willing to take the time to study their music, come to rehearsals regularly, and perpetuate the choral art. Even more so, I appreciate your desire to make great music and do an exceptional job. The task of preparing for a performance is never really over, because as musicians we are always taking things to the next level. But at some point, we need to share what we have prepared with our audience. This completes the cycle of the art of singing: the composer writes, the performer presents, the audience receives and affirms through applause. Indeed there was applause and an ovation of thanks for your gift to the audience. WCU still has a lot to offer our community. Keep making beautiful music that comes from your soulful hearts.
Your Grateful Conductor,
