Remembering My Favorite Conductor

I was a member of the YGC for a year during my sophomore year. But my contact with Mr. Heath extended beyond that time. I often attended events where the YGC sang a special number and Mr. Heath conducted the Club. Also I often ran into him at the Battell Chapel Sunday services. It seemed he usually attended Sunday services alone almost every Sunday.

Several years ago, the YGC came to Seoul, Korea on a concert tour and I attended the concert - to find that there was a new conductor. So after the concert I approached him and asked about Mr. Heath, to which he replied that Mr. Heath had retired, to my chagrin.

I will miss Mr. Heath's enthusiastic conducting style and, especially "I'm gonna ride the chariot in the morning, Lord."

God bless you all.
