"It's a lot of 'fa who fol ray' and that sort of stuff," he said from his home in New York. "The chorus sings it, but if you saw it written, you would laugh."
Stull will portray the greedy green Grinch in the West Virginia Symphony's annual Home for the Holidays pops concert this weekend at the Clay Center. Stull is no stranger to the role, Maestro Grant Cooper or the West Virginia Symphony.
"I've worked with Grant on his original piece, 'Boyz in the Wood.' He was on the faculty of Ithaca College, and someone suggested he talk to me about that role years ago," explained Stull, who has also collaborated with Cooper in performances with the Anchorage Festival of Music, the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra and the Cayuga Chamber Orchestra.
