“Fundamental to our culture”
- Ernest Brusubardis III
Waukesha – WCU Artistic Director Ernest Brusubardis III this week said the choral group’s performance of “Sunrise” was an impressive success, urged singing members to continue perfecting their craft and to invite others to join them
His remarks were part of a letter sent to each member as a personal thank you for the group’s just concluded 40th Anniversary season on May 3.
“Last night’s concert was a milestone in our choral growth,” Brusubardis said. “We sang in multiple languages. We prepared music that was in eight or more parts. We sang challenging a cappella works.
“Moments in the “Sunrise Mass” were stunning. The Mass ended fantastically. The concert ended great. The audience received a blessing which you provided them.”
Brusubardis, characterized singing as “an athletic activity,” noting “you proved you were capable of that requirement.”
He thanked members for their ongoing commitment to Choral Art.
“The survival and quality of that art is totally dependent upon you,” he said. He explained it is the members’ vocal instruments that make the work of composers, publishers and directors – as well as the enjoyment of audiences – come alive.
“The importance of what we do as WCU is fundamental to our culture,” Brusubardis said.
In wishing members a summer full of “rest and relaxation,” Brusubardis invited them to return for another great season.
”Come back in the fall. Invite other singers you know to audition. Always keep singing. After All, How Can You Keep From Singing?”
