Notes & Reviews:

The Boston Cecilia's concert performance of Scott Wheeler's one-act opera on April 1st, 2007, in New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall, was hailed with a 'Boston Globe' headline: "Construction of Boston is a love note to the city." Drawing on a cast of brilliant, young, mostly Boston-based vocal artists, a chorus of established reputation in music old and new, and an outstanding orchestra comprised of first rank professional instrumentalists, Wheeler's witty, first foray into the operatic genre got a brilliant reading under the baton of veteran conductor Donald Teeters.
