Elgin Opera needs supernumeraries (don't trip -- it's just the opera term for extras) for scenes from The Magic Flute and Die Fledermaus. Adults and children are needed for performances May 1-3. If you're in the Chicago area and you're interested, please contact the office at (847) 695-5014 or firstname.lastname@example.org. These are volunteer positions with a minimal rehearsal commitment.
Rehearsals have been a lot of fun, and it's shaping up into a great evening. Hope you can make it!
I actually get a bit of a breather this week -- church gigs are a staple for many of our singers, and Holy Week keeps 'em hoppin' like Peter Cottontail, so it's not practical to schedule any rehearsals. So I have a little time to scrutinize my headshot proofs, do some updating on my website, spend some quality time with my very patient and supportive hubby, and maybe even do a spot or two of spring cleaning. The first quarter of 2009 has been insanely busy, even by my standards, so this is very welcome indeed!
Song for today: "Beauty" by Shaye. For the many, friends and strangers alike, walking in the toughest of places.
