Seven of my private voice students were on stage at the Muny this week.
I’m one proud teacher.
I caught six of them after the second performance of The Little Mermaid.
That’s two waves, two guppies, a Flounder, and 1/4 of an octopus. Not a bad catch . . . at the Muny.
I posted this blog entry four years ago. The sentiments are still the same this weekend. I’m saying goodbye to six most wonderful seniors from my Webster University voice studio.
Alas. Hallelujah. Godspeed.
From Tuesday’s juries, here are three seniors after their song sessions:
I’m having a hard time visualizing next year without them.
I invited my acting and musical theatre voice students for a final Sunday brunch yesterday.
Graduating six seniors this year has already made me a weepy mess, and we still have this week of final exams and then Commencement yet to go . . . .
Seven of my eight university voice students (the seven who will be studying this semester with a colleague whilst I am on leave) joined me at home yesterday for brunch of sinful and decadent brie & sausage casserole, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, and assorted beverages.
We closed our part-day together with song, me heading to the piano after Jacob played for a while, and after Christian noodled for a while. I think a good time was had by all.
Sadly, Cherlynn was taking photos yesterday, and is missing from most of the photo gallery.
