I love to listen to classical music, always have. So, a few months ago, I heard about a contest on WQXR Classical Radio here in New York City. My brain rolled the idea around and thought, I’d like to enter. I was busy teaching my students and didn’t really think about it again. Then, a few days before the deadline, I remembered and told my husband if he would video me, I could enter. He did and I found out this week, I made the semi-finals! I am SO very excited! It is such an honor!
There are 3 categories. Mine is the 35+ category. Each category has 10 semi-finalists and the top 3 in those categories get to perform at Lincoln Center, a dream I’ve had since 8th grade!
You can help me get into the top 3!
Anyone with a Facebook account can go to my page, accept a video contest app and vote. You may vote 1 time within 24 hours.
I would be honored for you vote and then share with your friends and family to vote! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
I have not posted since my dad passed. Sorry, I just have not made time for it. But I am starting back up for my niece Molly! 🙂
I always wanted my nieces Molly and Maggie to experience things I didn’t get to at their age. So far we’ve enjoyed Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Hollywood and Los Angeles! Now….it’s just Molly. So, since Chris and I live in NYC, Molly and my sister Diane get to – for the first time – experience The Big Apple! I’m SO excited!!
Hamilton is the HOTTEST ticket in town and not since Rent has a show made such an impact on the future of Broadway! Molly needs to see this show!
Ok! A few minutes ago my sister texted me that Ty Herndon came out…of the closet! My first reaction? Finally! I can’t count the number of friends (and family members) I have in my life who struggled with their true identity. We ALL know someone.
Now, why should I care that another celebrity came out? Because I was lucky enough to be a dancer in one of videos back in the day! (1999 to be exact!) Were there questions about his sexuality? Yes. Did we care? NO!
All I’m going to say is that he was FANTASTIC to work with! Such a great individual and all-around nice guy! And SO TALENTED!! So to Ty! I’m sorry it took you this long to be comfortable to openly discuss all this, but I wish you even better success in your life and career!!
