"You Are Loved [Don't Give Up]"

  2006-11-28


Josh Groban's new album came out a few weeks ago, and since then I have listened to it a number of times. I must say, it ages well. I find it similar to all of the rest of his work: excellent. There is something about the kind of operatic vocals he is able to carry off that's fantastic. Perhaps someone will pick it up for me for Christmas, but if not, I am sure it will find its way into my collection at some point over the next year. Last night found me at the "Nine Lessons and Carols" at the Winspear Centre, a display of the U of A Mixed Chorus, the bell ringers, and a fantastic organist. It's been incredibly cold outside, but it was still worth going. That concert hall is quite impressive; that was the first time that I have ever been there. After that performance, my interest is newly piqued in seeing the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. I hear that "A Christmas Carol" shows every year too, unfortunately, I guess it is apparently priced at $75 a seat. No thanks... In any case, I think it's about time that I got a little it of shut-eye.
