“I’m very happy — very happy — when I work again on a piece I have done in the past,” he said. “And I see how much maturity I’ve gained, how much knowledge I’ve gained, and how I look at that score now compared to how I looked at it, say, 30 years ago. This is so wonderful — to feel that you have grown a little bit.”
Burleigh leaving CpM
Chorus pro Musica has announced the departure of music director Betsy Burleigh. Burleigh, who also leads the Providence Singers, will leave both groups at the end of this season to take a position at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. Burleigh took over Chorus pro Musica in 2009, succeeding Jeffrey Rink. The chorus has begun a search for its next director. Its concert this Sunday, at Old South Church in Boston, includes music by Ives, Bernstein, Britten, and Daniel Gawthrop.
