Holy Tuesday - Jesus delivers the Olivet Discourse. Although not a strict representation of the Discourse, I think that was what was intended by this piece.

Holy Week (the week leading up to Easter) is typically one of the busiest weeks in every church musician's year. Once upon a time, not so long ago, one of my traditions on Easter Sunday was to watch recordings of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar. My favourite recording of all-time is definitely the Australian revival cast recording released in 1992 featuring (who I describe to Americans as Australia's answer to Michael Bolton) John Farnham as Jesus, Jon Stevens as Judas, and a cast chockablock with other top-notch Australian rockers 🦘.

Given the current hiatus of events, I thought it would be fun to post excerpts from the cast recording as they relate to each of the days of Holy Week. Unfortunately, a DVD of the live performance was never released, so I will give links to the amazing studio cast recording on Spotify.

@unt_opera is fixing to present Blitzstein's "Regina", opening this week. It's a story of greed and corruption, wrapped in southern charm. Come for my southern accent, stay for the fabulous score and all-star performances.

I'll be on stage this Friday and Sunday.

Performance dates: Feb 27 to Mar 1
Tickets: thempac.music.unt.edu

Sitting backstage revelling in the experience that has been Salome with @dallassymphony. My role is mostly done (one more short appearance to go).

It has been an absolute honour and privilege to be a part of this epic work with some of the most fun AND talented human beings getting around. I can't thank the orchestra, Maestro Luisi, and the incredible team here enough for letting me onto their stage, and for their care and attention over the past week. I have never felt more valued as an artist.

Until next time!
