** The concert was conducted by a British woman who also played lead/solo violin as well. Like concurrently. And the entire ensemble was standing (except for the obvious can'ts of the harpsichord player and cellists). It made for a very different concert experience and a more exciting and involving concert.

I'm now all hyped up to do more house projects! Frost makes house projects fun!
I need to look at my schedule in the next few weeks and figure out how to plan to get these things done while also choreographing and directing the spring scenes. And costuming. And other things...
But tonight is about choreographing. I have to teach the choreography on Wednesday night, so it's important that I do it sometime before then!
