Last evening, I took dinner with Adam Voshall.
Adam was a voice student of mine when I was still teaching at Music/Arts Institute. He was a pup then, but a talented one. He briefly considered a music major at college, but opted instead for Philosophy at William Jewell. An Anglophile (like me!), Adam spent a year at Oxford. He took a Nursing degree. And he is now ABD on his Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska, doing something unpronounceable in Biology. He deals with statistics that deal with algae, and some attempt to turn something about them into fuel. (Truth be told, I understood, but I can’t clear it all up enough to relay the info this morning!)
Adam is now 30. I haven’t seen him in a decade. He’s funny and smart and very much like the kid I remember, but now with facial hair and the easy demeanor of a guy who’s found his place after traveling the world for a bit.
I’m so glad to have dined with him, and shared a slice of pizza and a local brew.
In other news, Bruce and I heard five hours of callbacks yesterday. And I spent some time at the exhibits. And did some Webster work.
And my knee is bothering me, so I iced and elevated it last evening after all was done.
Today = back to the audition room!
On Tuesday evening I posted a blog entry on my voice teacher blog, with the entry containing a listing of all the audition songs I had heard in the previous two days.
As of this morning, that blog entry has over 750 hits.
