Only Connect

Friday, January 22, 2016 - 01:10

If you are a literary sort or if you took a post secondary English literature course or two, you will know that the title of this blog post is a direct theft from the epigraph of E.M. Forster's novel, Howard's End. Published in 1910, it's a lovely Edwardian novel about class, love and marriage - with a hint of the terribly sad World War I innocence, of a life and a time that was about to be irrecovably shattered. The words "only connect" refer to the novel's message of human connection in terms of class, emotion, intellect and sexuality.

Long Beach, The Grand Canyon and the Interconnectedness of Things

Monday, August 24, 2015 - 22:30

It is now the lazy, hazy, dog days of summer as I write this after returning from a family vacation. During July and August, my teaching schedule tapers off. My husband is a school teacher and now that we have kids in school or about to start school, our vacation time is best taken in the summer. Last year, my husband, my younger brother, our two kids and I stole my parents’ van and visited the Grand Canyon en route to a Star Trek convention in Las Vegas.

Tenth Anniversary of Second Take or Why I Have Not Put Out Another Album In Ten Years

Monday, March 30, 2015 - 12:49

It has been ten years since I released my second album Second Take; I have not put out another album since then nor do I have any foreseeable plans to do so. Why? After all, I consider myself to be a singer/songwriter, don't I? The answer is Life. The last ten years have seen births and deaths and a prolonged losing battle to save a loved one from severe mental illness coupled with drug addiction. When the most important events of one's life occur, there is usually little room for much else.

Laudate Turns Twenty

Friday, March 6, 2015 - 01:16

This weekend (Sat., March 7th), the chamber choir in which I sing, Laudate Singers will perform their twentieth anniversary concert. The choir first started in September 1995, thus making this chamber choir in North Vancouver twenty years old this year. Lars Kaario, the founding and current conductor has commissioned choral works for the choir from the very beginning so most of the pieces will feature past commissions and one current commission along with some of Lars' favourite pieces by John Tavener, Arvo Part and others.

Christmas Time is Here

Friday, December 12, 2014 - 01:01

I love Christmas. Yes, it's very hectic, especially if you're a classically trained singer. This is the one time of the year when female singers can get a decent amount of work. I manage and sing in the Caminando Carolers of course, I sing in the Angelus Singers (another excellent caroling group in Vancouver) and I have my own solo voice and piano act. The Laudate Singers also have some big concerts in December. Yes, I make some extra money at this time of year as a performer and that is nice.
