Hedreich Nichols

Advent

Gospel and the Advent


As previously stated, after this year Hedreich will be based in Texas and will commute to Switzerland for seminars, concerts and studio engagements. That news lent a sentimental note to the recent Glarner Inspirational Singers annual concerts. As they gave a nod to the last 13 years of choir history by including solos from former pianist Christian Menzi and even inviting singers from yester-year up to join the musical fun, the full house crowds clapped and sang along wherever they could. Since Hedreich likes to do interactive concerts, they sang lots and so the Advent season was ushered in with joy!

Advent–of Another Kind

Since there was probably no star shining over Chicago’s Gravity Studios at 2am, we thought we’d announce it here–the baby is born! No, not that baby. And maybe it’s reaching a little to compare the two. Still, we’re proud to announce that the CD is finished! Doug McBride did the mastering with mixing engeneer James Auwarter and his assistant Miela giving valuable inputs. The first couple of reactions have been more than positive and although sudden peace on earth is probably not imminent, you can expect a good sound and rich stories that will hopefully make your corner of the world a tiny bit brighter. We’ll keep you posted on availability, concerts and all that jazz.

On other fronts, Vienna with the Inspirational Singers was exactly that–inspirational. With good music, incredibly beautiful venues like Schonbrunn at Christmastime and the Viennese guildhall (pictured) it was a picture postcard perfect.
With that, we here at hedreich.com would like to wish you the best and brightest of holidays with hopes that the magic and miracle of a long ago birth will carry you through the season and on into a prosperous 2010. If we don’t see you at the Tschuggen Grand Hotel in Arosa, see you next year!
