Ugh. I'm sick!

Well, actually, I'm getting over it already. After over a year of wellness, I've had the flu and now a weird cold cum sinus infection/laryngitis. All within just a few weeks. Couldn't happen at a worse time either. Just when I'm preparing for Elysium's concerts in Oregon and getting things going here in London. I'm sure everything will be OK, but it sure is aggravating now!

Members of my former church choir from Christ the King in Frankfurt, Germany met up here in London last Saturday and Sunday. Our former director, Kathy Bird was here to visit and was really the catalyst. It was great fun to see people again. We also attended the Eucharist at St. Paul's Cathedral and heard Christopher Sladdin sing with the choir. I hope we can do it again sometime!

Elysium in High Gear

As per usual, a month before our performance in Oregon, we are moving into high gear and I'm getting upwards of 20 emails a day sometimes!! We've had a slight hiccup, but a good one. After Anna and I both booked our flights, we found out that Medford wants us to perform there after all! Anna had given up on them last summer when they didn't reply again after she proposed our fee. But she got an email asking if we were still planning on coming! They've accepted our fees and terms and although it's a little tight with rehearsals, we're going perform in Medford, Oregon, on Friday, March 2 giving a Question and Answer session afterwards. Now we just have to figure out how we are going to get there in good time and maximize the time we have for rehearsal.

More on that later!
