Classical Caber: Dirk sings Rachmaninoff’s “Vespers” in Providence, RI

Last Saturday, Dirk joined the Brown University Chorus in a performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, also known as the All-Night Vigil. Our friend Fred, the director of the chorus (which is comprised of Brown students), needed to supplement the ensemble with a basso profundo, and Dirk fit the bill perfectly. Not everybody can hit that low B♭! I only managed to capture a little bit of video (above), but you can really hear Dirk’s mellifluous bass at the very end of the clip.

Here are a few photos from the performance; I’ve highlighted Dirk with a yellow arrow.

Cleans up nicely, doesn’t he?

    Jesse, Thank you for this snippet. Even if you hadn’t mentioned hearing him at the end with that low note, I would have recognized it anywhere. All thanks to Missa Conceptua. I with I could have been there to here it live.

    I played the video the day after Labor Day, in Canada anyway, I’m not sure if Americans have that day. But …. listening to it made me laugh, as a nice way to start the day ! Inspiring!
