Senior recital

My three seniors have now completed their senior recital. Two of them are off to college soon.

Sydney Jones, Jett Blackorby, and Maria Knasel had a good day Sunday.  Our recital featured solo songs, duets, and trios. I’m deeply in awe of these three, and going to miss their banter and fun.

And that same evening I caught two of these students in Footloose at the Muny!

Somehow I missed getting one with Magnus on Monday! And Will on Wednesday!

A house party

I had the delight on Saturday evening to sing some British songs from the first quarter of the 20th century — this at a house party hosted by my colleague Ruth Price.

Fifteen of us gathered for bit of light entertainment and then a wonderful gourmet meal. All on a Downton Abbey them.

And a good time was had by all!
