Borrowed Passions: COSI Connection Performs in Hamilton, with two John Laing premieres.
Many thanks to Michael Bloss and Dean Peter Wall from Christ’s Church Cathedral, Hamilton, for our “COSI Connection” concert there! I was delighted to conduct the premiere of John Laing’s brilliant solo quartet with organ, “Watching With Jesus.” John’s solo aria for tenor and organ, “My Song Is Love Unknown” was a tour de force for Charles Sy (above, left). I am grateful, too, for the superb singing of Claire de Sévigné (above, right), Charlotte Burrage, Ryan Paul Downey, Tenor and Stephen Hegeduss. It was a thrilling afternoon, and a pleasure to introduce these fine vocal artists to Hamilton.
