Blazing the Stage and Chris Carter

Patrick took some wonderful pictures of our performance at ACDA. This is one of my favorites.

Other ACDA news: a student at the University of Georgia sent me an email complimenting our performance, our faces while singing, and especially Chris Carter's. Here is her email--she gave me permission to share it with you:

Dr. Copeland,
I'm a member of the UGA Women's Glee Club, and was privileged to watch your performance at ACDA on Thursday morning. I just wanted to tell you, and your choir, how much we all enjoyed your performance! Your pieces were beautiful, the soloist in the last piece sang wonderfully, and the stage presence was amazing! I wanted to try and speak to your group back at the hotel, but we never crossed paths. I was especially impressed with one of your basses (I think it was a bass) in the middle of the third row, with short blonde hair- he has the best facial expressions I have seen in a college group! The entire performance, he had a huge smile on his face and just made the music that much more enjoyable! A few of the other girls and I agreed, it felt like he was singing to us, like there was no one else in the hall! I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with your performance, and I'm sorry that an "exchange concert" was unable to be arranged. Once again, it was a pleasure hearing your choir perform and I hope to hear you again!

The lips are a bit overbearing, I think.

The lips are AMAZING!!! One more way we distinguish ourselves from other choirs.

On another note, where are the rest of the pics Patrick took? I am dying to see them.

i ... um...agree with maggie.
I want to see the rest of Patrick's pictures too!

I'm sad that I don't get to see my vowel. I agree with the "more pictures" sentiment.

OMG!!! This is one of the only pictures I have ever seen myself in -concert. I always wondered how I looked from the outside. I am going to save this picture for myself.
Be on the look-out for my pictures from the trip. I will email them to you soon.

I dunno... I think it's a bit distracting, myself. But then again, I'm not watching us sing, so whatever.

Nick said something to the effect of the red lipstick making all the women look as though their lips had been cut off. I've heard a couple of other people say it too. So you're not the only one, Desta.

I just don't really like bright red lipstick. We could go a few shades away from blood red and I don't think it would kill the effect.
