Robert Hugill muses on the staging of Handel's oratorios

TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON

'In the city, a man and a woman ran a music school. The man handled the school's business affairs and the woman gave piano lessons. The woman, Miss Laudon, taught Art and Truth in her lessons and the man, Mr Eschenbach, gave her the most promising students.'

Jenna Orkin of wtceo.org tells a story based on her high school piano teacher.
