A personal favorite recording, today I used it to transport me while having dental implant surgery.  I'm typically terrified of dental work...but this is the best competition for drilling while soothing my soul...I could visualize being in the Cathedral

Exquisite!  She encored last night at her Bellingham WA recital, and I couldn't get it out of my head (because I didn't want to let go!).  So happy to find this on YouTube...and I downloaded her 27 Pieces too

Songs of Angels, Christmas Hymns & Carols was recorded by Telarc at Spivey Hall at in Morrow, Georgia in summer of 1993 so it could be released for Christmas that year. Robert Shaw served as Distinguished Visiting Professor of Music for five years at Clayton State University, home of Spivey Hall.  He chose a select choir of voices from his extraordinary Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus to serve as his Spivey Hall resident Chamber Singers. For this recording, he wanted to revisit the music on his beloved Christmas LPs many of us grew up with in the '60s.  His Chamber Singers recorded in the heat of the Georgia summer with all air conditioning turned off to keep the sound pure. To put the singers in the Christmas spirit, the Spivey Hall staff and I decorated Christmas trees on the stage.  I served as founding director of Spivey Hall from 1990-2006 and experienced five years working with Robert Shaw toward the end of his life and extraordinary career.  He marveled at the acoustics, so exquisite that Robert Shaw gave us this quote: "Spivey Hall is to Music what Light is to Painting"

Regal Barkley Village Stadium 16 & IMAX
3005 Cinema Place, Bellingham, WA 98226
Oh Dear...WHY did Regal Cinema build such a flagrantly ugly new theater in a city that distinguishes itself for it's natural beauty and affinity for the arts? The theaters have yet to open, but EVERYONE is talking about the cheap and tasteless yellow and red facade. Regal created an eyesore when it could have been a gem.
Appeal Poor - FairFacilities Poor - FairService Poor - Fair

Bradley, I watched LA grow, Atlanta grow, and growth on its own is not always good.  Smart growth, aesthetics, these things matter...and you're wrong, I've attended  the Regal 16 many times.  I object to having corporate leaders in a distant part of the US decide the appearance of our public facilities.
