Well, folks, it seems I’ve gotten a little behind on keeping you up on my current events! Here’s the quick and dirty on what I’ve been up to:
-Spent the summer playing softball with friends and playing music with strangers. Focused a lot of time on my original music and played my first open mic! Also played some singer/songwriter nights with friends and busked at the farmers market in downtown Vancouver. Very exciting!
-As fall moved in, shifted back into theatre mode and participated in a fabulous staged reading of Homomentum: the Musical. The production marked another first for me: my first role in drag! Turns out, I can really rock the Burt Reynolds mustache. The response to the show was so enthusiastic that recording has already begun on the Homomentum soundtrack, so keep your ears open for people humming those tunes in the not-too-distant future!
-Winter has arrived and I have spent this most magical season singing with the Grotto carolers at the Grotto Festival of Lights. Tomorrow is our final concert, and I really have enjoyed every minute of it. It’s such a joy to be singing beautiful Christmas carols in four part harmony with a group as lovely in spirit as in voice.
Next up: another show with Well Arts! I am so excited to be working with this group of writers, all mothers of children with developmental disabilities. They are a diverse and talented bunch with some powerful stories to tell. I will try to be more timely with my next post, but in case the days get away from me, you can find all the information at wellarts.org.
Happy New Year!
