On May 16, 2010, Kirk Kupensky and I did a world premier of a new piece for harp and voice entitled “Salve Regina”. It was a new setting of the traditional Latin text of the Salve Regina composed for us by Kathy Henkel, a composer from Los Angeles. The composer attended the premier, and afterward sent me a lovely note. I wanted to share Kathy’s note with you all.
“The premier – WOW! You and Kirk couldn’t have had a more beautiful performance! When you floated your last note, you transported us all to heaven. Thank you SO much.”
