Howard Dyck's Grand Farewell

We've known for a while that Howard Dyck is retiring next year. After stepping down last year from his perennial post as host of Saturday Afternoon At The Opera on CBC, news that he was in his final season at the helm of the Grand Philharmonic Choir wasn't far behind. With his last Messiah coming up and a Dream of Gerontius with Ben Heppner coming in January, Kitchener's The Record has a great article covering a little bit of his life, focusing on his helping of young singers throughout his career. It's a nice article and worth reading to get a glimpse of an amazing Canadian career in vocal music.
