I was one of the tenors performing in this year's "TOO HOT"
Chorus. You have done an extraordinary job in depicting the style and rythmic accomplishments of the principal vocalists, as well as the 150+ voice choir. Jazz in Chicago has added another dimension from the presentations this week-end. And of course, this was a labor of love. As you have indicated in your news article, this explosive musical work of gospel, jazz and blues has opened another avenue for the curious and for those who ordinarily would not take the time to sit through the full presentation of Handel's traditional Messiah.
We look forward to filling the Auditorium to the fullnest of its rafters as THTH returns next year.
