Dear Friends of the May Festival,

As you know, one of the passions of my life is music, especially choral music. I’m in awe of the power that music has to bring people together, which is no more apparent than in the commitment made by our own May Festival Chorus. You and I have shared many years together listening to the Chorus sing in Music Hall.

I’m guessing that you don’t know about two other passions in my life: food and cooking, both of which must be in my Italian DNA. I suspect we share these passions, so I’ve chosen some of my favorite recipes and will send them to you in the weeks ahead. Though we can’t join together in music, I hope these recipes, direct from my kitchen to yours, will be a source of comfort in this uncertain time.

Robert Porco
Director of Choruses
