Enjoyed a final bow at Emory & Henry College this past weekend behind the keys as music director alongside longtime friend and collaborator Stearns Matthews, our guest director. The beautiful scenic design was by a senior design major Will Spencer and the lighting design by the brilliant Kevin Dudley. Was beaming with pride at our students tackling the deceivingly challenging score.
We're just about a month out from starting rehearsals for The Rocky Horror Show at Emory & Henry. To say I'm thrilled to be directing and music directing the production would be an understatement. Not to mention, my first collaboration with our newly appointed (rock star) scenic and lighting designer Kevin Dudley. The production features guest narrators nightly and a special midnight performance!
I recently had the great honor and pleasure of performing alongside my music department colleagues at Emory & Henry College in our new digs, the McGlothlin Center for the Arts. It was a thrill, to say the least.
The performance, entitled Coming Home, featured the brilliant Dr. Lisa Withers, Dr. Matt Frederick, Dr. Allyss Haecker and yours truly. A friend was kind enough to capture some bootleg recordings which I'm happy to share here.
It was particularly moving getting to be behind the keys again, singing and playing (a place I feel truly at home). Much love and many thanks to the brilliant Bob Ballengee for his accompanying me on percussion.
They are bootlegs after all, so don't mind the quality, just (hopefully) enjoy.
