MY DAY: New musicals & old friends

Saturday was packed full, and I loved every minute of it.

I met with Raymonde Rougier, a retired music teacher and legendary accompanist in the Miami Valley, met me at Awesome Yogurt for some yummy fro-yo and to discuss working with a blog. I am excited Raymonde is now a blogger – her humor is very Erma Bombeckesque.

I had a wonderful lunch with a former student who is heading off to his first choral directing position in Tennessee.  Very excited for Trey, and so good to spend some time with this talented young man – now, a colleague.

1:40 PM I was in the lobby of the Human Race’s Loft Theatre to enjoy two new musicals in workshop.

2:00 PM – we thoroughly enjoyed, and howled to the incredibly hilarious, THE NOTEWORTHY LIFE OF HOWARD BARNES, written by composer Michael Kooman, and lyricist/librettist Christopher Dimond.

5:00 PM – dinner at Salas in the Oregon District with my theatre companions, Suzanne Grote, Becky Brunsman, and Aaron Jacobs.

8:00 PM – back at the Human Race for the second musical in workshop, GUARDING GOLD STREET by composer/book writer Sean Michael Flowers, and librettist Marya Spring Cordes.

By 9:45 PM my little quartet was breaking up and spreading out.  At home, I had two kids delighted to see me.  We went for our walk, and had some snuggle time before I trotted upstairs to bed.
