I should have walked the red carpet, but since I didn't...

Franz Schubert pretty much owns my life right now. At least every spare moment. The spare moments that usually go to blogging.

I just watched the Oscars. And my new gown would have been awesome on the red carpet...modest, even. It's really too bad they didn't invite me.

I'll be wearing it at the Heritage Center Tuesday evening. That's tomorrow, folks. 7:00 pm, free admission and everything. Come, and bring me flowers. Or don't bring me flowers, but come hear me sing Schubert.

It'll be fun.

Besides, Mandy had to postpone her coupon class, so I know you're all free.

And for those of you that can't come because you aren't privileged enough to live in my town, I'll post pictures soon. Then you can see the gown, (which is totally the most important part of being a singer...wearing princess dresses) and pretend you can hear me singing. I don't know if they're recording the concert or not. I'll see.

And then perhaps I'll think of something wonderful to blog about on Wednesday.

Until then.

  1. Good luck! Anxious to see the gown. I would love to hear you sing sometime, but tomorrow night I have the cub scout Blue and Gold Banquet. I wonder which princess dress I should wear...

  7. Awwwhhh... I wanna go (can you hear the whineyness in my voice?), but Pueblo, CO is too far to drive. I can't wait to see your princess dress (and I totally agree - it IS one of the big perks of being a singer. Do you remember Mandy Hall who wore diva dresses to every voice lesson?). Even more than missing your princess dress, though, I will totally miss HEARING you! Break a leg!!!!

  9. I'm willing you all of my high notes right now. Take good care of them; they're old.

    I also love my "concert black". It always makes me feel rich, particularly when it's hanging in the closet next to the "everything else drab" that is the uniform for the rest of my life!

  11. I need to send you a link to an opera singer that was on "Wait wait don't tell me" last weekend. You would have enjoyed it. They just interviewed her. She didn't sing.

    Oh, and your painting is on its way. Sorry it didn't turn out as well as I wanted it too.

  23. Regarding what you said about the Hugh Laurie songs - one of my favorites isn't on the playlist. It's called "good azz mother liker." It's hilarious. Watch it on YouTube. It's even funnier when you see the lyrics in case you miss something. I love the "dog" part. lol

  27. Ah-why am I just finding out about this on Tuesday at 7?! (Also-I'm not quite sure where you live, so maybe I couldn't come) but I wish I could. I love Schubert, and singing, and princess dresses.
