My new goal for the week. Giving thanks in all circumstances. Sounds easy, no? HA. Hard hard hard. Maybe that will be lent....
I went to Dr. Van Cura's recital this evening. It was so good! Nice to know my voice teacher is also an excellent performer! He did a piece at the end entitled "Old Mother Hubbard" which brought the house down....especially when playing the dog and shaking his leg. Amazing! And on the yay VC note -- He grinned his way through one of my lessons last week. Not just the occasional, lets make her feel better smile, but veritable grinning! YAY! That means I sound ok! Alright, enough gloating for one evening.
I got an A on my orchestration test! HA! Who says singers are dumb? And over the string section no less! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! So there!
More rehearsals, and then for fun, a retreat on saturday in Austin! What fun will that be? I watched the new "Anne Frank" movie last night and bawled my way through it. It's hard to feel sorry for yourself when you see what those people had to go through -- and somewhere in the world there is a group of people still going through it somewhere. On that fabulously lively note, I'm off to class. One more day of music history. I really don't want to go. It's a rainy day and I'd much rather sit inside and read all day. Doesn't that sound like a much better use of my time?
