Excerpts are taken from a performance I conducted with New Jersey Concert Opera in Plainfield, New Jersey. These are my favorite moments of the 3+ hours of music. The performance was one of the greatest moments of my conducting work and I am eternally grateful to Olive Lynch and New Jersey Concert Opera, the great cast and orchestra for this incredible opportunity. I had no video so the visual portion is my attempt to blend photos I had taken with images of myself conducting and instruments of the orchestra with images of nature - primarily the forest. I hope you enjoy.
