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.
