Oh my!

Thank you all for your notes of support, including my “mystery poster!” In case you haven’t read the comments, Anonymous informed me that the “tour groups” in the balcony were not tour groups at all, but, rather, major donors! One more case in point that you never know who is watching or listening, so always be ready to show your best side. (Thanks, also, to CD for his congrats and compliment; I’ve always held Dessay as the model of the intelligent soprano, sight-reading skills notwithstanding! I’m honored to be mentioned in the same post!)

I’ve had two more potential jobs come my way. Neither of them are sure things yet - in fact, one is just a potential audition - but when/if details firm up, I will certainly share. They both involve large periods of time away from home, so I think Erik and I would be redefining our definition of “home” if either or both jobs came to pass. More on that as it becomes relevant. Regardless of whether I get the jobs, it has been intensely satisfying (gratifying, validating, encouraging – pick your adjective!) to have such an immediate response to my audition. I have a meeting sometime later this week with one more audition attendee; I’m not sure if it’s a meeting to discuss the audition in general or something specific that might come of it, but I’m happy to talk with him in any case.

It seems that I just might, after all, get some opera credits on my resume this year…

To those who get to watch, none of this is a surprise. Can't wait to hear the details!

Oh, hooray, a real live singer website! I'm so happy I found you here in the blogosphere!!!

I'm a former singer myself, a conservatory trained (long story)spinto soprano but haven't sung in years. I'm 42, a Mom, and a music critic, too. But recently, I've begun to miss it so, singing and all these delicious "singery" things you describe. And the whole Donna Karan blouse/coture/fashion thing is so much fun too ...

Yep, I'll be reading your blog and commenting often! Come on over to mine and comment, anytime. (I'm trying to get more thoughtful and readers who are willing to comment.)

Also do you read Jessica Duchen's jessicamusic.blogspot.com? She's a real live music maven in the UK, and a lovely person. There's always a lively music discussion going on over there!

Anyway L-O-V-E love your blog, hon. Keep blogging, we love it!
