I had the great good fortune to be in the Vancouver Bach Choir for 25 years, and the last several under the baton of Bramwell Tovey. The man is totally brilliant, and wonderful jazz pianist who can improvise anything, brings fresh interpretations to old saws and is one of the funniest men on God's green earth. However, you have to "tune" your ear to his English cadence or you will miss his bon mots and asides. Enjoy him. I know the orchestra will. And Tracy is a Canadian icon.
