Big adventure

Today is departure-day on the big summer adventure.

First stop is Stockholm, then Vienna for three weeks, with side trips to Florence and Venice and Salzburg.

Thank you, Webster University!



Today is my last day in the office for a while.  I’ll do some work, go to the library, write some letters, have luncheon with Rob Lehman, teach a conducting lesson and a voice lesson, clean off my desk, and leave by 5 p.m.

The next five weeks are away on school business.

Proud teacher

I’m an incredibly proud teacher this weekend.

Five of my Webster University voice students are in The Drowsy Chaperone at the Webster University Conservatory of Theatre Arts. I saw the show again Friday night, and will it again on Sunday.  Tonight I sat with the parents of my senior Jacob Scott; visited with the parents of my senior Chase Thomaston; and finally met the parents of my sophomore Jacob Flekier.  Caroline Adams’ parents were also in the house, although I did not get a chance to say hello.

Yesterday I posted a photo of me with Chase.  Today’s photos are with the Jacob the Elder and Jacob the Younger (top photo).

And here are some production photos with my five students in them:
