It's going well

Messiah rehearsals are going well and I think it is going to be an outstanding performance on Friday. I've been impressed with Mr. Scott as both a musician and a rehearsal technician. I hear strong singers around me and the orchestra sounds great.

I know some don't like rehearsing Messiah and I'm a bit mystified by that. However, to each his/her own, I guess. I'm having a great time singing with a great choir.

And now, for a very important announcement. Make sure that you are there at exactly 6:30 on Thursday night. Be early, in fact. It matters. Don't call me with an excuse--and I mean it. Just be there. On time. Acting like the incredible young adult that you are.

There may be serious consequences for your tardiness. Your absence will earn its own reward. Ontime attendance, of course, will be greatly appreciated.
Choir directors have the kind of power that I reference above. Especially college choral directors.
Our performance with the BCC and ASO is important for the school and choral program.

No, actually he doesn't, that was just fun to say.

I am so excited and can't wait to be a part of the audience! Taking Friday off from school so I can walk in the door without glitter, glue, tempera paint and tangled hair!
