Tracy went ahead and ran Christendom Four today. Many thanks to those who have helped me towards ad removal.
I’m faring fairly well this morning, though moving a bit slow after a brisk 24 mile bike ride yesterday. I made a list of things I have to accomplish from home in the next two days–all good stuff, including a music rehearsal schedule for The Sound of Music, a newly revised version of the Eden in Babylon libretto based on decisions made on Sunday, my monthly column for Street Spirit News, and three new songs on the Baldwin Grand so’s to release a new album of piano songs to the likely suspects.
I will at some point need to alter my home page, since all arrangements involving the production of my musical are essentially wrapped up in my relationship with the Regional Theatre of the Palouse. The reading and sing-thru held Sunday the 26th was the first of four or five we will conduct between now and May, while I’m also working on Guys and Dolls and South Pacific for them. After the season closes with South Pacific in April, we release the “package” in May–all materials needed to produce the show economically in a house of any size. This will include a fully recorded instrumental track of the entire score, to be used to accompany the singers while they are performing.
This all leads up to a production of Eden in Babylon at RTOP in Summer 2023. There was an unusually nice turnout for the reading on Sunday, and we hope that throughout the next year, more word will gradually get out, and chances of a high audience attendance will increase. All of this is of course if the Lord wills — but these guys seem to know what they’re doing. The producer and I are conceptually in sync, and it’s been a relief to let other people handle all the administrative details that have never been my forte.
Meanwhile, WordPress is still on the back burner. They’re hitting me for the domain name now too. I knew it was coming, but I’m not sure having a “domain name” is high on the list of life-priorties now. Putting it into perspective, if one considers that “seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” is one’s top priority in life, I would think that “domain name” falls fairly low on that roster.
I’ll be back again when I’m back, probably with those three piano songs. Thank you all once again for your support —
