The 54th VocalEssence season is in full swing and Philip Brunelle, VocalEssence Founder and Artistic Director, is delighted to be rehearsing the Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn music with the Ensemble Singers and the Chorus, preparing for the October 15 opening concert of the season, The Mendelssohns. On September 18 he was inducted into the membership of Sigma Alpha Iota as a National Arts Associate, a rare occasion for a man being initiated into this national women’s organization!
Philip did his part to invite folks (4 tables!) to attend the VocalEssence Gala 2022. He also attracted some unique silent auction items (such as playing the pipe organ at Northrop Auditorium and finding a condo to view the Aquatennial fireworks next July).
On September 26 he left for Barcelona where he is spending time at the Montserrat Abbey, meeting with the Abbey staff and listening to the Montserrat Boychoir–who will be appearing on the VocalEssence season at the Basilica of St. Mary on November 11.
