Chorus director calls it quits at 92, with Chichester Psalmsmain
Robert De Cormier is retiring from the Vermont Symphony Orchestra Chorus, which he founded 20 years ago. What to do for his farewell?
Everyone agreed on Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms. But De Cormier’s second proposal – Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time – was shouted down by the singers. They’ve insisted on Brahms’s Deutsches Requiem. Report here.
