A suspicious award

Chris Riggs, a former partner in crime in my days in the Suspicious Cheese Lords, emailed me and other former members tonight to announce that the group won a Wammie—a Washington Area Music Association award—for choral group, classical. Considering that past Wammie classical winners have included Hesperus, Leonard Slatkin, the National Symphony, and Denyce Graves, this is a Big Deal indeed. Many congrats to the guys; I only wish I could have been there to see the award.

Update: Here is the full list of 2006 winners from the WAMA site.
