Conductor Andrew Grams, far right, gave low fives — hand slaps down low rather than the go-to up high — to the trio of soloists at Friday's performance of "Carmina Burana."

"And tenor Christopher Pfund, who sang only three verses in the performance, was the standout with his charismatic portrayal of a swan on a spit. His entrance on stage, glancing about the orchestra with the look of someone who had wandered in off the street with no clue why they were there, was priceless and fit his character of being an innocent and unwilling guest for dinner."
