“Conductor, Jim Griewe, after 35 years as founding director of the Sonoma Valley Chorale, directs his final concert with the same passion that he brought to the first one,” said Chorale member Chris Smircich after the concert last Sunday, celebrating 35 years of performances. After introducing the very last piece at Sunday’s concert, Griewe handed his baton to the new conductor, David Irvine, saying “It seems appropriate, since my first concert was the Messiah that I hand the baton to you to conduct the Halleluia chorus.”
