It was beautiful. Even though we had to relocate from Dahlgren to the concert hall due to construction around the chapel, it was amazing. The musicians are exceptional and the Baroque period is sublime.

There is nothing like sublime and uplifting music to usher in Holy Week; few finer places to enjoy it than Dahlgren Chapel, my spiritual home for nearly 40 years.
