The year begins

Sunday, August 31, 2014 - 23:42

It has been a year since the last time I wrote a blog entry. Maybe the explanation for this lack of activity can be found in the previous blog entry appropriately titled "In Praise of Sloth". A better explanation is that I'm a middle aged working mother who never even "surfed" the net until my early twenties and never had a computer with internet access until I was 25. I enjoy technology and its benefits but it is still a somewhat unfamiliar thing for me. I still use a paper day timer and I'm only now about to get a smart phone (iPhone or Android - I can't decide).

In Praise of Sloth

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - 15:34

I confess that I am generally a lazy person; probably not a good statement to put on a website that's for professional use. Now, that's not to write that I don't take vocal technique and artistry or performance seriously - I do. I consider it to be almost a moral failing to show up underprepared for a rehearsal or a gig. Bad, diva-esque attitude from anyone at a rehearsal or a gig provokes anger in me. While I tolerate it when students show up for a lesson without having practiced, I certainly don't like it. Wherever I am working, I take some pride in doing a good job.

June

Tuesday, June 25, 2013 - 23:11

I love June. I love the fact that it begins with the birthday of my beautiful little boy, Ben. He's now three years old and he continues to amaze me every day with his intelligence and his remarkable sense of empathy. I love the lengthening days and the warming temperatures. The weather can be very unpredictable but if you want little or no distinction between seasons, move to the tropics. I love the fresh vegetables and fruits that are now locally in season. I just finished making the most tasty strawberry jam with fresh local strawberries. Guess what's for Christmas this year?

May is upon us with absolutely beautiful weather. We are enjoying summer-like temperatures after at least three years of very wet springs.

Understanding Beauty

Wednesday, March 13, 2013 - 00:31

March began with two Laudate concerts called Mass Enlightenment. We performed Missa Assumpta Es de Maria by Palestrina, a compiled mass consisting of movements from a few different masses and Mass for Double Choir by Frank Martin. The first performance was on March 2nd at St. Andrew's United, the second was on March 8th at Holy Rosary Cathedral. This is why my March blog post is late this month. Thank you so much to those of you who attended.
