Date Confirmed

OK, maybe I'm getting ahead of myself here, but Paul just wrote to say that our preferred date for the performance of his work "Endurance" has been confirmed. So, if it happens, it'll be on 24 March 2007. However, the financial bit has yet to be submitted to the sponsors so I suppose there could be some hang-up, but I don't foresee that happening. So, Yea!!!! If you can make it to Fort William, Scotland on March 24th then I'll see you there!

The Answer is Yes

So, the answer to the question I posed in my last post, "Do people in the music biz actually end up working together, meeting each other in real life, or is this [MySpace] purely virtual?" is YES! I now have my first official gig in the UK and all thanks to MySpace! As of yet there is no confirmed date, but it will likely be toward the end of March. I will be performing the premier of Paul Moxon's work entitled "Endurance". The piece is 5, 10 minute episodes for orchestra and soprano. The subject, which is programmatic in nature, since I'll have no text to sing, is Shackelton's ill-fated expedition in 1914 to Antartica.
The occasion is the exhibition of photography, by Frank Hurley, salvaged from that expedition which will be on display at the Lime Tree Gallery in Fort William, Scotland from February 16 - March 24, 2007. I'm really excited about this project!!! I'll keep you posted...
