Not to mention that I have a middle and high school choral concert tomorrow night. I am looking forward to showing off all my students and we really are doing a great job with our songs. But I hate the part where I have to talk to the audience. I have so much to say about the selections, the kids, and music education in general but I fear that I am sounding like a babbling idiot. So what I do is write down what I want to say but then I don't look like I know what I am talking about because I am just reading off of a paper.
Sadly, I really think that as much as I want to be an extrovert I am really an introvert deep down inside and quite possible a little neurotic.
So back to the musical.
Bella is one of the step-sisters, Portia. She is the dumb one. She is having so much fun being that character.
She also won the cover art contest.
They darkened it up a bit and, of course, added all the performance information. It will also be on the cast t-shirts too. So fun.
On another musical note Rich and I had a date night on Saturday and went to see Pitch Perfect. I really liked it too and I think he did even though he probably would have rather seen Alex Cross or some other Y chromosome movie. He knows that I could NEVER see those kinds of movies and loves me anyway. The proof of this is that not only does he love me for not liking the same movies he does he will go see MY kind of movies.
True love I tell you.
To end on an A Capella note I am posting the following video. A student of mine introduced me to this A Capella group called Pentatonix. They do a version of the new video craze Gangnam Style by the Korean singer Psy. I love good A Capella music. If you like this you should look them up...like me.
But I will admit I am a little obsessed.
