If even Bob Edwards is doing it, maybe what The Concert needs is Twitter.
I have definitely entered a new chapter of my life, both personally and professionally, and with a total of eighteen posts in the past eight months, I think it's safe to say that this blog doesn't really fit.
Yesterday I joined Twitter after listening to the big NPR story about it, and this morning I thought: "Maybe this is what The Concert needs!" No more 300-500 word mini-essays about role preparation or life on the road, which means no longer spending an hour composing said mini-essays a few days a week. I don't have the time anymore, and while I have missed writing, I think I need to explore a more private avenue for that.
But I also miss sharing my career with people, passing on lessons or recounting funny moments or working out frustrations... So I'm going to try Twitter. A few times a day, probably, I will post tidbits about what I'm working on and how it's going. Kind of like a Facebook status update, but for The Concert. There are new themes to pursue: new rep (next season will see Micaela and Marguerite), being part of a two-singer household, and hopefully some new companies/states/countries to explore...
Maybe? I'll give it a try. If you're interested in following along, check it out here: The Concert on Twitter.
