Check it out! I love being behind the stand - conducting is my new favourite thing! I can’t tell you how nice it is to prepare a piece, bring it to a choir, and have them sing it perfectly not just because they’re exceptional collaborators and vocalists, but because you demonstrated to them, encouraged them, and made clear and recognizable gestures throughout the piece! Hard work but that’s what I’m all about!
Life is really nice right now: work is going so well, school is so enjoyable and I’m doing so well academically this term in addition to learning a TON and having the opportunity to work with the best of the best profs, choir is spectacular (last night we did an improvisation workshop where we experimented with leading and following, creating melodies and rhythms as a group - there were a group of four of us - two altos and two basses- and we were pressing our hands together and singing this lovely little song that was never the same from one minute to the next… that’s real music, folks. I love this group), and AJ and I are finding ways to keep stable and okay - now that I’m dating someone with a schedule as busy as mine I’d like to offer a formal apology to everyone I’ve ever dated for being so emotionally and mentally unavailable in the busiest times. We’ve had a rough start to the term but we’re finding a rhythm inbetween the distance and our busy schedules. He stayed over last night because he had meetings at head office this morning (which is a convenient three minute drive from my house) and falling asleep with my best friend at the end of the longest day was so perfect - bonus brownie points for this guy because he woke up with me at 5:30 when I was getting ready for work and called me when he woke up to head to the office to tell me that I forgot my lunch. Oh, I’m fortunate to be with someone who is so good to me and whose hand and life fit with mine so perfectly.
I’m going to go do some score analyses/conducting prep and then go teach some of my favourite kids!!
