The Road So Far!

The Road So Far…

It might be Spring!

Hopefully it’s not a false alarm, but it seems the snow has finally abandoned us. I feel like we’ve all spent months being cold and wet! But warm weather is on the horizon!

And even bad weather hasn’t stopped it from being a busy and fulfilling first quarter of 2014!

Here are just a few highlights:

I was featured vocalist for The West Village Chorale’s winter concert in February. What a terrific group of people! Artistic Director Michael Conley programmed an evening of eclectic, interesting songs, and gave me an opportunity to put my own personal stamp on songs by Coldplay, Queen and Gary Jules. It was a smashing success, and the house was packed!

I then had the pleasure of performing one of Mr. Conley’s original songs! The tune comes from a musical he’s writing. He’s hoping to have a reading of the show this summer, and I’m hoping to be in it!

I also performed in a Purim show for the National Yiddish Theater – Folksbiene. The story of Esther was given delightful musical treatment by using familiar Gilbert and Sullivan melodies, and was presented in English and Yiddish.

More recently, I had the pleasure of appearing in a reading of Carver: Don’t Underestimate A Nut, which was produced by the legendary Negro Ensemble Company. I portrayed George Washington Carver in the musical, which was written by award winning actress/author/composer Micki Grant, and was directed by the amazing Nora Cole. And what a terrific group of people with which to share the stage!
