We have just received the following message from Raymond Saint-Jean, director of the documentary film “A Chair Fit For an Angel,” featuring music by The Boston Camerata:

“I am happy to announce that our film has won the Grand Prix Golden Eagle from the Document.Art film festival held in Bucharest, Romania, from October 15. There were fifty films in competition and the jury chose ours as the best!”

That’s a fine honor indeed. We congratulate Ray and the Cine Qua Non Team, Tero Saarinen and his dancers, and our terrific Boston Camerata singers.

We also note that the film was shown recently on Finnish television. Let’s hope American audiences get to view it soon.

First rehearsals got underway last weekend in Strasbourg for the December Camerata tour. Our stellar vocal soloists — Azéma, Harley, and Rentz-Moore (plus instrumental virtuosi Lazarevitch and Ansorg) will be backed up by sixteen distaff chorists from Mission Voix Alsace. It promises to be a terrific, three-concert tour.

In our photo, Anne (with hurdy gurdy) rehearses with the choral ensemble, as the early-autumn light pours into the Foyer des Etudiantes Catholiques. If you haven’t visited Strasbourg and Alsace when the sun is out, you haven’t lived…Hopla!
