These two remarkable men don't merely practice their art, they LIVE their art and the rest of us benefit. Thanks to Tesfa and Classical Notes for bringing this conversation to the public.

Thank you for this glimpse into the hearts and minds of these two great men. Each has had such an impact on the choral art, and this small snapshot of their friendship is so special. We always need to be reminded of the reasons why we do what we do, and they both so eloquently iterate the passion and vulnerability that comes when people create music together.

Would love to hear more "Classical Conversations" with Tesfa in the future. I appreciated how comfortable they were with this interview and how their inner beauty really shined through. Kudos to all!
