The Pirates of Penzance
I tried to write this a couple nights ago, but I couldn't quite get it out. God never ceases to amaze me. He has put me right where I am supposed to be. I love going to school here in Winston, for so many reasons. One of the big ones is that I have an amazing opera company in my backyard...quite literally. Every time I have seen a Piedmont Opera production it has affected me in such a special way. and I finally got the opportunity to be a part of a production. My first professional opera gig!
The Pirates of Penzance, is not what one might call a profound show, but being a part of this production was a profound experience for me. I Loved every single second of this entire process. More importantly, however, I loved working with the amazing people that were involved with this production. I loved learning from these incredible artists, and being so incredibly inspired by them.
To everyone who was a part of this production: I hope you all know that you each have a very special place in my heart. I hope you all know how much love I have for you and how much I respect I have for you. I am so grateful God put you in my life! I am completely overwhelmed with Love and gratitude. I just wanted to try to tell you all how amazing the past couple months have been, getting to know, and work with you. you have all reminded me of the sheer joy that should come from doing this very special thing we get to do. I will never, ever forget this adventure and I will never forget you! you are all in my prayers!
The Dorkie Diva
I don't remember exactly when I came up with this, but I think it is so fitting! I really am truly one of the biggest dorks in the world, especially when it comes to Opera and Music and I hope you can see some of that here on my blog! I also hope Then there is the other half which is my diva side, she is only allowed to show herself in my style, and on stage!
