This blog is about my transition from singing to being a piano person. I guess I spend more time nowadays being a piano person, but I am still singing! This Saturday, the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra is performing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and I’m joining the choir to help the tenor section out. The last time I sang this was in college decades ago, at least in the chorus. I sang the tenor solos in the Ninth Symphony dozens of times and in dozens of places, including in Holland and Germany. It was regularly performed at my theater in Germany at New Year’s Eve. What a great piece of music! It’s an honor to be able to perform it once again.
And coming soon is the Lyric Opera of the North's summer production, Cavalleria Rusticana. Once again, I will be part of the chorus, and what a chorus it will be!
As life goes on, selling pianos and singing in professional productions is not the only thing that gives me great pride. We’re up to three grandchildren now, which is a miracle and a blessing.
Duluth won the Golden Shovel Award for the most snow in a season in Duluth. I think it was around 12 feet. We are so ready for- what we call around here- Construction Season, but it’s really just the season that doesn’t have snow in it. And here it is! What a great time to do something about your lack of a piano!
