The pandemic came and all of a sudden I had six productions cancelled and two symphony concerts gone. …This period will be interesting because it will make many of us – whatever profession we’re in – decide whether this is really what we want to do. How patient are we and how willing to make the sacrifices. And how positive. —Judith Yan ACD2 4042 5 OPENER | All in Good Time | DAVID PERLMAN STORIES & INTERVIEWS 6 Q &A | Beautiful Exceptions: Judith Yan | LYDIA PEROVIÇ 9 CHORAL SCENE | A Messiah for our Complex Times | BRIAN CHANG 12 EARLY MUSIC | EarlyMusic.tv and Sing-Alone Messiahs | MATTHEW WHITFIELD 14 IN WITH THE NEW | Celia Livingston’s Vocal Pleasures | WENDALYN BARTLEY 17 CONVERSATIONS | Composer Keiko Devaux on the Debut of Arras | CAMILLE KIKU BELAIR 19 CLASSICAL AND BEYOND | Chamber Beethoven as his Birthday Beckons | PAUL ENNIS 22 FEATURE | Opera Online (Plexiglass and All) | JENNIFER PARR 24 A WORLD VIEW | Modal Stories in the Labyrinth | ANDREW TIMAR 26 MUSIC THEATRE & DANCE | Yes!
