The big day is almost here

I am singing a duet recital this week with Jackie Jackson, another soprano in town.
This last week has been filled with rehearsal after rehearsal trying to get ready. It's down to the wire for sure, especially since our accompanist had a funeral to go to out of town and was gone most of this week.

You have two opportunities to come see us if you live close enough.

1. Tuesday, Sep. 16 at the St. Jude's Episcopal Church on 200 West in Cedar City. We will be doing only 4 of our numbers, and several other musicians will be performing. This is part of the Orchestra of Southern Utah Fall Recital Series. Recommended donation (these are fundraiser recitals for the Orchestra) is $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for students, but you can donate however much you'd like. Children under 6 not admitted. Click here for more information.
2. Wednesday, September 17 at 7:00 pm in the St. George Tabernacle. We are performing our entire repertoire together, plus a solo piece each. It will be good, and we need audience. Free admission, anyone can come. Click here for more information.


I'll see you there.


PS: Our publicity picture isn't great, I'm aware. Jackie's husband took it using my camera. Even though I punched in the right settings, he had trouble focusing, so this was the only one in focus. I fixed as best I could in photoshop. Rae! Why did you move to St. George!

  1. I wish I could come! I miss hearing you sing O Holy Night at Christmastime. Maybe I'll get to hear you sing again sometime....sigh.
    Good luck!

  2. I'm afraid I am out -- but I will totally be there in spirit.
    Go you.

  3. Good luck if that is what you say. Just in case "brake a leg." Will just have fun.

  4. I am sure it will be great. I don't know if I can make it with everything going on this week but I will try.

  5. I wish I could be there to meet you, but my husband has plans for us for our anniversary. So you sing AND take incredible pictures? Is there anything you can't do? Can you pass a little bit of that talent over to me?

    P.S. Good luck! I'm sure it will be beautiful.

  6. I'm sorry we won't be able to make it. I hope the performances go really well!

  7. I bet you girls will sound great! I love Jackie, she's the choir director in our ward which means we have the best ward choir ever! Seriously!

  8. Good luck!!! Have a good time.
