What, V? Amy's leaving??? Oh yeah we knew that. She's doing doctoral work in Florida, I hear. She's done wonders with Intermezzo. Tonight they're performing a wide range of music from John Leavitt's Festival Sanctus, which we just heard, to a Scottish folk song, and to piece by Dvorak that's got so many superscripts I can't even type it here. A sweet song, this one. And they are finishing their set with Stephen Leek's Riawanna -- again shades of the savannah here, with percussion accompaniment by John Hadfield. This talented group of youngsters finish their turn with the American classic Amazing Grace, arranged for voice and guitar.
