Mozart at St. Sulpice
An amazing surprise - my friend Beth, the glamorous Elizabeth Procuronoff, sang Mozart with orchestra and chorus the night I arrived. A big celebration of Mozart's birthday, she sang his Exultate Jubilate, excerpts from the Requiem, and The Coronation Mass. I've known Beth since Northwestern days - she also was my Mezzo in the quartet at Second Presbyterian in 1980. She now lives in Paris with her husband Francois and their three sons and not only sings gorgeously, with impeccable coloratura and great expressiveness, she also makes delicious escargots! It was so great to hear her sing again. Isn't it spectacular: Beth in Paris singing beautifully, Richetta Manager (the Soprano from the quartet) in Germany singing beautifully - we had no idea no idea back then that we'd all be doing what we are blessed to do now.
