As I put the month of November away, I am glad to see some promising things and experiences on the horizon… December will bring an always-welcome opportunity to return to the gorgeous island of Oahu to enjoy Christmas Eve singing at the First Baptist Church of Honolulu! In February I will perform my inaugural jazz concert at the Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg, SC with the wonderful commercial music faculty from University of South Carolina Upstate, of which I am now a proud member. I’ll return to that stage with my Peggy Lee Project in April, following a soprano soloist appearance in Schubert’s Mass in G at the USC Upstate Performing Arts Center. June will bring more touring, this time in Nashua, NH, among other places, and the summer promises some new recording possibilities.
Reviewing the year enables a working artist to reconnect with her goals and aspirations, revisit her career priorities and solidify yet-unmade plans to keep moving forward. Life can and will get in the way if one allows it to! Happy are they who remember who they are before the circumstances of life crowd out the truly joy-giving endeavors.
