Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil
The Phoenix Chorale has announced that Chandos will be releasing their recording of Rachmaninoff's "Vespers" next year - a CD they'll be making with the Kansas City Chorale. Performing the work this weekend and recording in a couple of weeks, Music Director Charles Bruffy spoke with our Sterling Beeaff about recording a piece that has great meaning for him.
