WOW! It has been months since I have blogged! The superb spring 2016 season has come and gone, a gorgeous Encore trip to the Italian and French Rivieras has come and gone, our fantastic 2016 summer camps have come and gone, the Osprey have come and gone and oh yes, throw some surgery in there and nasty eye problems and voila……..we are into the fall season! Oh my!!! By the way, the Osprey behaved better this year than last!!!
Our fall 2016 Encore season has almost 1000 singers enjoying challenging and entertaining rehearsals. The singers have written such lovely emails thanking our staff for all the work they do to make Encore such a huge success. It is so gratifying to receive those notes.
I have also received so many notes of thanks for the choice of holiday music. I am always nervous about that. I want to please everyone, but of course that is not possible. But I will certainly continue to try.
The music for our spring season has to be spectacular because we will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary. WOW! On May 13th, all our Encore Chorales and ENCORE ROCKS will be in concert at DAR Constitution Hall! What a celebration that will be. So save the date now!
Larry and I are leaving October 8, my 67th birthday, to sail the beautiful Chesapeake Bay for a week! Ahhhhhhhhhh! We will stop at Solomon’s Island, Tangier Island, Onancock, Cape Charles, and then head on up the bay. There is nothing like 8 days on our beloved “Cantabile.”
But before I left, our fabulous Encore staff gave me a birthday party. Five wonderful women full of energy, passion and stories! I am a very lucky gal indeed!
