Let Me Entertain You

The concert at Marugamemachi was a lot of fun, despite the cold and wind (I think my lips froze to my teeth a couple times). Lots of former students came, which meant a lot to me. I love seeing familiar faces in the audience. As far as my performance goes, I think my voice has matured (I guess childbirth and gaining a little weight will do that), but I need to work on my stage presence. You don't realize that's something that gets rusty and needs constant practice just like the singing.

The good news: they asked me to sing again in the spring. So I must have done something right. Here are some photos. Video to come, as soon as Hans shows me how to get it from the video camera to the computer and cut it into clips. Thus far I've only done it with our little digital camera.

Top of the dome. Great acoustics!

Setting up
The woman who made this possible. Thank you so much Miwako!
Sooooo cold.
Song to the Moon
The crowd
So many flowers!
Lunch between performances
Hans was so supportive. I couldn't have done this without him.

This is so exciting!! Look at you! You looked totally pretty and way professional and famous!!! Awesome. How cool that they asked you back. I like your outfit a lot, too - very glamorous and wintery. I think they were just building that dome when we were leaving, b/c I remember it and construction around it. Is the Gap around there?
So facebook kicked me off, so if you don't see me on there for a while, until they let me back on, that's why. They are jerks. So...I should send you my email address somehow so you can reply whenever you can to our ongoing email discussion. How can I send you my email on here without broadcasting it to the word I wonder.

Hmmm...if Rick and Aileena have it, I could get it from them.
