(I was also distracting myself form the second portion ofthe rising that the bread I made had to do. I will put this super easy bread recipe on here in a couple of days. When I say easy, I mean e.a.s.y!!)
Saturday was an exciting evening! I arrived at TU's Lorton Performing Center to prepare for the evening's Gala and Concert. Tulsa Oratorio Chorus (of which I am a first year member) celebrated it's 20th Anniversary with a beautiful gala before our Tribute to Film and Stage Music concert. The Lorton Performing Arts Center (named after Roxana Rózsa and Robert Eugene Lorton) is a beautiful, new state of the art facility. It boasts practice rooms, a small recital hall (the Meinig Recital Hall,) the main recital hall (Gussman Auditorium) and student practice rooms. It also holds a number of beautiful art pieces, including an original Picasso piece.Our concert contained pieces by Bernstein from West Side Story and Candide (It's well known 'Make Our Garden Grow'), pieces from Les Miserables, and film pieces by John Williams, Morricone, and 'the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly! All in all, it was a great performance that entertained all. My only regret is that I could not turn around and stare at t he projection screen the whole time. While we were singing, pieces of the films from which we had music represented were playing on a giant projection screen. I had never been to a concert like it.
All in all it was an enjoyable weekend! I spent it with friends and family, and (despite the surprisingly cold weather) got a lot accomplished. Those always make forthe best weekends!
