First, thanks for a great three rehearsals last week. We are doing well and progressing towards our goal.
As most of you know, Leigh and I went on a weekend trip to Louisville with our friends Joey and Jennifer. Louisville is a great place to visit and an even better place to live. Here are a couple of highlights:
- The Brown Hotel (where we stayed)
- Breakfast at Lynns Paradise Cafe
- Actor's Theater: we saw the play called The Miser, an adaptation of Moliere's play. (i liked it, but here is a so-so review)
- We went to a comedy club . . . something we rarely do. The comedian was hilarious--Scotty K. The wierd part was that this guy lives around the corner from us here in Birmingham! He even has a graduate degree in counseling from UAB and anundergrad degree from Samford. Strange, huh?
Joey and Jennifer and Leigh and myself were all once members of the choir at Ole Miss. Joey and I were in the choir together for only one semester. We became friends in Louisville and had the common Ole Miss choir bond between us all.
College choir can be a very special part of your life, if you haven't figured that out yet. You will definitely meet many great people in your college choir--especially our college choir. If you stay in it long enough, you may get a chance to visit some of the most famous cities of the world and sing in the world's greatest cathedrals. You might even meet the person you will marry and have children with in choir. I did . . . and so did Joey and Jennifer. So watch out--it can happen.
Anyway, the Wilkinson's had great things to say about you in the rehearsal they observed on Thursday. Thanks for your great attention and great singing.
