A dear friend was in town for the music educator's convention, so I got to spend some quality time with her, AND I got to spend some time with a few NWU trumpeters, because I played herald trumpets with them for the Elizabethan Feast the Wesleyan Chamber Singers (and company) put on each year. I've done this for the last 4 years, and they needed extra help, so of course I agreed to take part in it (to be with friends, yes, but also because we get to partake in the feast when we're done!).
Perhaps the most noteworthy event, though, was the Harris Music Studio (this is a different color because it's a link to the website - check it out!) Second Annual Faculty Recital. I feel so blessed to be a part of this group of people for so many reasons. This blessing was affirmed in the time we spent sharing our talents with each other, our students, and the rest of the audience. (Before the faculty recital in the evening, we gave a "Wedding Preview" recital of musical selections commonly performed at weddings. If you're interested in finding out more about this, let me know!) I wasn't sure how many of my students would be in attendance, but was pleasantly surprised to see the majority of them there!
SO, there you have it - a glimpse into my life for the past few days! : ) I hope your weekend was wonderful and the week is off to a great start!
P.S. The spell check said "flugelhorn" was spelled wrong and suggested I use "flagellation" instead. I'm a little bit offended...
