Concerts (and the choral year) are done. And I’m glad to put a pin in it all.
The Queen concerts went… well. They seemed to be very well received by the audience. We had lots of production and good soloists and drag queens and dance numbers. So it all worked.
It was just unfortunate that the chorus was a little hackneyed. Many folks didn’t know words or music and some had issues with the choral-ography. And by the concerts the conductor had kind of given up and was just trying to keep things together so he didn’t conduct a lot of cutoffs so…
So from my perspective it was all kind of sloppy.
But it’s done, and Friday nights performance was seven(!) seats from being sold out. So that’s all good for the chorus. And many of the chorus members seemed to have fun with it all, so I’m happy for them.
Now I can focus on Pride and the rest of summer. Biking. Getting fit. Visiting parents. And getting ready for our new director in the fall.
(He’s ever so dreamy!)
P.S. we do have one other event– singing the national anthem at the Twins game on July 9th or something. A minute and a half of work, and a free twins game? Don’t mind if I do.
