Iceland Away!

Had our first, and possibly only, face to face meeting before we're off flying to Iceland. Almost two hours in length, but extremely productive. I think we're going to be a good team. As soon as I get a copy of the photo from Jan van Asselt I'll put it on the blog.

What's got me excited is not only the prospect of being in this wonderfully rugged and foreign land for a month, but being there with a group that could become close friends.

What's got me sad is that I have to leave my wife behind for a month. I love traveling with her. She has a way of making every trip an adventure.

What's got me nervous isn't the eruption of Eyafjallajokull: it's all I have to finish before going to Iceland on May 24 - much of it has to be done quickly. Someone, some power, some authority - PLEASE give me a 26 hour day or two to get caught up!

St. Matthew Passion

At the Passion performance, at the intermission.

This may be the best I've heard from this chorus and orchestra. The orchestra, in particular, seems exceptional tonight.

Very impressed by both the Evangelist and Jesus. Marvelously sung.

Photos are up on the Picasa site. Congratulations are in order to the Music Department for another wonderful event.

I hope the Theatre will live up to the quality of this Passion performance.

Tomorrow 2 & 7:30. I'm playing the character I wrote. Should be interesting.
