My Fall Musical Season 2014
Our recital tonight was so fun! We sang three songs. Pauls choir also sang three songs. And then we had almost ninety additional minutes of solos, ensembles, and a string quartet perform together at the Heritage Center Theatre.
Paul has been singing with Village Voices for a couple of years now, and they are so good!
I joined In Jubilo when I moved to Cedar City two years ago, and was able to sing a few solos and enjoyed a wonderful series of concerts with them. Then I was called into the Young Womens Program at church and had to quit for a season. It is so great to be back. I love singing with a talented group of women!
It was fun to sing in the same concert with my husband. He cheered me on and then I cheered for him.
We have such a great season of music coming up! Messiah with the Orchestra of Southern Utah, Bens Choir – The Southern Utah Childrens Choir, I am directing A Year with Frog and Toad Kids for the Kimber Academy, and I am auditioning for The Sound of Music. Have not decided which part yet. Sometimes I feel really confident that I could pull off the Mother Superior and sing Climb Every Mountain, and then other days I feel not so confident and just want to play a nun or the housekeeper. Auditions are in two weeks, so I should know soon.
It has been six years since I directed a childrens show. The last one I did was the summer of 2008. We performed High School Musical, the one act version during a Theatre Camp I set up at my childrens charter school in Colorado. I am really looking forward to seeing what sort of response we get from the local Homeschool Community. We tried to make it very affordable.
I made a promotional video ad for the internet the other day to advertise the Musical Theatre Elective. Here it is:
It is going to be a busy couple of months, but I am excited to throw myself into rehearsals again and create some beautiful memories with my family and friends.
