This summer has been exhilarating so far. I am enrolled in a doctoral Music History Seminar on Aaron Copland that has been great fun! This is while I have been preparing for my second of three DMA Recitals with the Coppell Community Chorale Select Women.
This past weekend was the culmination of that work which resulted in a performance at Rejoice Lutheran Church and the final Recital at UNT on Saturday. The choir sang beautifully and expressively. The instrumentalists could not have been better. My UNT Faculty support could not have been more wonderful! Dr. Hightower came to one of my last rehearsals and gave comments which I shared with the choir. Dr. Sparks, Napoles, Kelley and a host of other friends came to support me at these performances.
I am so grateful to each member of the choir, and especially to Hillary for all of her work to help along the way. I am looking forward to the rest of this summer which has some great travel plans (including Amarillo, San Francisco and San Antonio for TCDA)! I hope your summer is fantastic!!
