I finished my last lesson by 2 PM, and within 15 minutes I was Skype being with several show choir directors who are implementing my breathing technique. By 3 PM, I was snuggling with three of the sweetest dogs in the world for a long awaited nap.
Then, it was off to downtown Dayton’s Schuster Center for the Performing Arts to see one of my favorite vocal groups, Straight No Chaser, a wonderful gift from the Houser family.
These 10 fellows are some of the most phenomenal entertainers I’ve ever witnessed. Their vocal artistry, tremendous wit and antics, and overall gift of entertaining is One thing I so look forward to seeing each December.
After visiting with friends before leaving the Schuster, I spent some time photographing the wonderful cases that contain some of the old Rike’s Department Store Christmas window displays. What a treasure of Dayton’s history.
I’ve one trip on the docket, and a number of projects I am hoping to complete until I resume teaching again, January 4.
