    The concert in Oakland was great (if I do say so myself). The Boys Chorus did themselves proud, the Verdi was gorgeous, and the concert raised $15,000!

      Wow, that's incredible! Congrats. I heard they raised over $5000 at our concert. It was also very beautiful :)

    I'm having dinner at a friend's house a few blocks away from 5:00. Hope to make it over to concert by 8:00 and will hopefully be able to connect with you all.

    I'm singing at the Oakland concert, which will feature excerpts from the Verdi Requiem -- one of my favorite choral pieces of all time.

    This concert seems very meaningful, and I hope many get to attend and help out relief effort. Sorry I will have to miss it due to going out of town. Thanks!
