It has been quite a month! July 4th concert with the Symphony of Southeast Texas, Choral Conducting Workshop in Dallas, tried to train while in Dallas and then to finish with Grand Prix Grappling Tournament in Conroe today. I’m tuckered out. I won some today and lost some. Came away with a Bronze and Silver medal, 3 matches. Thank you to my teammates for the support and encouragement today. BIG special thank you to Emmanuel Martinez for his absolutely superb coaching me through the matches today. Calm, clear, supportive and technical.
Heading to Houston tomorrow to hear the Houston Symphony perform one of my favorite pieces, Carmina Burana. Should be a full stage. I love this time of the year when things are slower and you can actually slow your roll and get creative. Resharpen the saw a bit. It is good to workout and get organized for the upcoming season. I have put together the 2016-17 season for the SOST and it looks like it is going to be a BLAST!! I can hardly wait, but first we have our season starting up in September. This is a great journey here in Beaumont. Really enjoying the ride. In the fall I have a chorus concert. My first choral concert, this will be really interesting! I will keep you posted on that. That is all for now. Stay safe out. Watch out for the crazies! Peace
