So much to do...So little time!

So, besides keeping up with my 3 busy kids, I'm trying to keep up with The Reminiscents
who continue to get busier and busier.  I've been singing some Seussome Twosomes with Capitol City Opera Company.  Marietta Princess has been quite busy, but I'm getting a break in June.  Mali has gotten in on the act as Sofia the First.  Looking forward to some quality summer time with my kiddos!   I'll be teaching piano lessons to some of my regular students over the summer.  Other than that, just looking forward to taking a little vacation time and seeing family.  And most important, to celebrate my 15th wedding anniversary with Franco!

The Reminiscents 2014

Christmas at Brighton Gardens of Buckhead
Dancing with Sam at Elcroft
 The Reminiscents are going strong, singing at lots of local Retirement Villages and having a blast.  Tish comes to sing with us on occassion, but usually these days it's me and Courtney dressed as Rosie the Rivetor doing a duet act.

Those who can't do....teach!

I think it should be more like ... You can't do...and teach!  At least that's been my case.  I really enjoy teaching, having the opportunity to share my passion for music with others on a regular basis, but it has kept me from singing, both because of the time constraints and also because these little germ factories keep me sick all the time.  However, I have enjoyed increased time with my beautiful family, who I appreciate so much!

This Christmas season brings a few singing opportunities.  First, at The Festival of the Nativity on Sunday, December 9, between 7PM - 7:30PM, I will share some pieces from classical Oratorios about the birth of Jesus Christ.  Second, The Reminiscents have 2 performances coming up.  The first is on Novemeber 29 in Athens for the Georgia Real Estate Education Association.  The second is a repeat performance for The Financial Network Associates annual Christmas party.

Still not much business for Marietta Princess.  Hmmmm!  Any ideas?

6 Months Later...

I seem to keep this blog as well as I keep a diary.  I'm not sure anyone looks at it, so it may not matter at all.  I was far too crazy with my 10 jobs last year to keep up with this blog, my family blog, and all my websites.  I'm trying to quit a few jobs and change my thinking a little for the coming year.  That will probably mean far less singing unfortunately, but that's what it is right now.

School is out now, and I'm enjoying summer poolside with the kids.  Life seems very calm now but I'm bracing myself for the storm, just trying to make the storm a little less tempestuous than last year.

I know this is supposed to be a blog about my musical career, but there's not much to report right now.  The Reminiscents have had several gigs lately, but no more scheduled for quite a while.   Marietta Princess went strong for about 6 months due to a deal on LivingSocial, but is drying up, so I'm trying some new strategies to get it going again.  Please cross fingers for me!

I chose not to participate in the summer fund raiser for Capitol City Opera, but will be there to help them raise money. 

Other than that, we'll just have to wait and see what my crazy brain comes up with.

Another New Year!

Well, my New Year's Resolution to slow down lasted until about July. I took on a teaching job at a private school. It's really tough! Hats off to all those teachers out there!

I'm still singing with the Michael O'Neal Singers. In October, I was the soprano soloist for The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass and we just started rehearsals for this year's Chamber Singers concert in March. It's going to be so great! It's called Double Exposure and features 2 versions of all the songs by 2 different composers. Not only is it fun to hear the different interpretations but it is absolutely heavenly music!

The Reminiscents did a gig in December. That was fun! Wish there were more!

I started a Princess Party business. That's going well! Very busy!

Still singing with Chords of Faith. Still have 3 kids. Still doing other private concerts. Still singing with CCOC for school shows and Dinner and a Diva.

So, life is really crazy! Here are all my websites:

Well, you're on this one...
