Erlan (da boss)
wants to know!!!
- Sorry about the delay here, it appears that my email address was
bouncing messages from the KWChoir list. I don't know why, but I've
"un-bounced" myself and it seems to be working well now.
The short and simple of it is that we are working on Estrella for this
year; we have rehearsal time reserved in the A&S Pavilion from noon to
2 each day. This is just like last year - we found the regular
schedule better than a staggered one. Also, the A&S collegium is a
natural gathering area for artists. Mistress Ealasaid has coordinated
the allocation of rehearsal space and I've received communications
from the War Officer so I know it's set. I see that there's little to
no info on any of the A&S on the Estrella site yet, so I'll follow up
Performance follows Queens' Tea on Sunday - that time has just been
changed this last week to 2:00 when Queens' Tea was rescheduled.
Music to be posted within the week.
I would really like to find some other directors in this area. The
last quarter of 2006 was completely filled with modern life, much of
it sad. That's what has kept me from being as responsive this year as
I'd prefer to be. It's not that I want to stop doing music, just
that I'd like to share the load.
- Ahh, there you are.
I'm so glad that things are working nicely.
Suggestion - Look for a deputy this year to train to take the choir
either next year or in the future, or at least to help take some of
the choir responsibilities off of you, so that your mundane life
isn't affected too much.
I've been toying around with the reality of coming out there
myself, and this year, it looks like a no. Next year however might
actually be a possibility.
It is also NOT necessary to have a conductor that is local. If it
ever comes that you want / need a break I will find someone to direct
the group out there. You got it going and I cant' thank you enough
for what you've done for the Known World Choir.
Estrella was the second site for a choir so it was Estrella that
make truth out of the name of the group. Lillies was the third site
to host the choir and I can't be happier.
So, folks, I put the call out, Is there anyone one out there who
might consider directing the West group in the future?
Please let us know. E mail me off list or Lazarus off list and we'll
