I really want to write more blog posts, including posting links to new music that I’ve heard, so I found this great template that puts posts front and center. Will hopefully be posting more soon!
Couple of people expressed interest so here is my performance schedule for the next 3 months:
May 4 – concert with the Continuo Arts Foundation, features our group (Civic Chorale) and all of the other choirs within Continuo (kids, teens, seniors, etc). Lots of great music! 7:30 p.m., St. John Lutheran Church, Summit, NJ, FREE
May 11, 12, 18, 19 – production of Madama Butterfly with Eastern Opera of NJ. In the chorus so a tiny role, but a great show! Saturdays at 8, Sundays at 3, Brook Theater in Bound Brook, New Jersey. Tickets http://easternopera.com/singleticket.html
June 29 – Minuetto Music Festival Finale Concert. Featuring a ton of singers from around the region singing great music with full orchestra. Caps of a day of masterclasses and other such things. Central Presbyterian Church, Summit NJ
Performance Time: 7:30 p.m. http://www.continuoarts.com/minuettomusicfestival.html
July 13 and 14 – Kinnara Ensemble concert. Pro chamber choir in the Princeton area. Very very excited Saturday at 8, Sunday at 3, don’t have locations yet but at least one will be in Princeton somewhere. http://www.kinnaraensemble.org
Just a brief update on a very busy couple of weeks:
- I composed my first full piece in quite awhile, Hamesh Dance, and submitted it to the SFCA’s New Voices Competition. I placed in this six (wow) years ago, and am hoping to have similar results here! It feels really good to have broken out of writer’s block, at least for now!
- Some great voice news! I’m now a member of the Kinnara Ensemble, a professional level group based in Princeton, and an Artist-in-Residence at the Continuo Arts Foundation, in Summit. I’m really excited for these opportunities and am glad to be back in an ensemble. I also love that I’m doing things in New Jersey instead of the city….though I’d love to rejoin C4 if I ever get the chance again.
- Finally, I presented my talk on responsive web design at a National Association of Government Webmasters webinar this week, and it seemed to go very well.
Besides a lot of things going on right now with singing and work, we still have a lot of wedding planning do to, including picking music (obviously the hardest for me)! It’s a very good time right now.
