Mus1CAL LIFE: Sing It

Mus1CAL LIFE: Sing It AgainCONTI NUED FROM PAG E 61beautiful powerful music but notthe kind you'd just hum withoutthe words. "Mica! was completely unpreparedfor the size of the music.The orchestra was really loud,driven by percussion. And therewas a whole adult choir as well.But even more, she was unpreparedfor the emotional size. Ruthtalked with them about "stuff underlyingthe music . We all noddedand said yes, yes. But I don'tthink any of us really understooduntil it all came together. I wasn'texpecting how the subject matterwould change who I am as a person,my sense of thankfulness."Mica! was among 20 childrenwho indeed went to Europe withthe piece in 2004, and one of 7who went to Israel (2005). Eachopportunity has deepened hergrasp. "I'm emotional and dramatic,good at acting out other people'semotions. But when somethingreally affects you about humanspirit you can't just put on aface. It takes courage to let downyour guard and make it you ... tosit in a barrack. We all did a lot ofcrying on the European tour."As it begins anew the oratorioincludes many of the original children,and some new ones . Thistime the challenges for Mica! arenot so much musical although"you could never sing this musicon auto-pilot." She is beginning,*TRYPTYCHEmma, Mica/, and Gabrielle,during the 2005 tour to Israel.All three return to sing the Oratoriothis year. "You have to letgo of all seifishness ... and be oneperson with the choir. "in many respects, where she ended- ready to explore with conductorTeri Dunn the minutiae,and to share her own understanding."This music has to be live. It'swhy people go to concerts. We arechildren, intent on making it thebest. You get to see that, and feelit. You have to feel the percussionreverberate in your ribcage.You can't feel that in an mp3.In the end, when your heart ispounding, and you are the choir,and you say this is my voice ...nothing is comparable."Oratorio Terezin will be performedat Toronto's George WestonRecital Hall on November 11and 12, and then Titles Center(Long Island, New York) andCarnegie Hall (New York City) inFebruary 2007.· -")~ ·~·~ Don't miss this-~~,;;~~ -· chance to develop-.. - ~ =~~ - . your OPERA1 ~.,; , L, D 0 M I N I c K AR G E N "~..'.'..,.. ~.' performance skills in.·,?
