Yo everyone, I'm Steve Main from San Francisco, and I am WAY THRILLED to finally be posting onto this site (I'm an AOL user - aargh - and have had 3 months worth of headaches trying to get to the point where I could finally post/reply to this board -- basically I've had to read all your posts with envy). Finally after doing who knows what to my cookies and settings, I seem to have gotten on -- probably a fluke and I won't be able to tomorrow.
Anyway, I am so amazed by GPO, and by this community. Thanks to GPO I just finished a 30-minute cantata for choir and chamber orchestra, and was able to make demo CDs as well (I just sent a copy of the score/CD to Gary Garritan himself, by way of thanks).
Hopefully a GPO choir is on the horizon for all us folks who write for choir and orchestra. Also, since I'm a professional organist, if I can help anybody with organ-questions, please contact me!
This is a great community -- I've loved the conversations so far. Hopefully I'll be able to keep the cookie-problems at bay!
