      Something of a transition day. After a few full three days with 90 kids on and backstage and a rescheduled performance (Saturday night got shut down due to weather and re-scheduled to Sunday afternoon), FROZEN closed with a very good feel. It was a good camp. Few if any behavioral problems, really committed cast members all the way from the Elsas and Annas to the smallest Hidden Folk, great support from tech and staff folk, a lot of fun music and movement and color, real friendships and connections with kids from different schools and districts. The only down-side is that I can't get some of those ear-worm music themes out of my brain!

      Something of a transition day. Tonight is MLK choral concert that HG is hosting and joined by community choral groups. I heard on the radio of a group in Sayre that is hosting a huge meal--sort of an open house for all; a time when black and white and brown and rich and poor and right and left and gay and straight can sit down and eat together. We're offering the same except we are singing together. It's sometimes a lot of details that get me stressed, but in the end I "let it go" and it is what it is. It's not meant to be a formal conservatory music concert, it's meant to be a choral open house for all, doing what we like and can do and that is sing and take some purposed time to reflect on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr....and then do something about/with it.

      An added element to the event tonight is the reading of short responses to MLK's words, written by WAHS students.

      Hope you can join us at the table.
