Sorry to have kept you all on hold. I had a bit of a down turn this past week. I got the flu. ;-( No big deal except that I had to miss the big orchestra concert that I was performing for. It was held at the big concert hall here in Graz, and a lot of the city attends. I was more dissappointed about missing that, than missing the big Meistersinger competition that was held this weekend. NOT a good week to catch the flu. It landed right in my voice, so even if I wasn't feeling so hot, I still couldn't sing if I wanted to. I didn't have 2/3 of my voice! Ugh! Of all the things to have happen. Oh well.... I'm starting to feel better and hope to be back on my feet by tomorrow or the next day.

I did get a chance to work with the world famous conductor that directed the orchestra concert - Eduardo Muller. He was a wonderful man! Very kind.... like a grandfather. And on the flip side, he knows his music better than anyone I've seen conduct. He is phenominal to work with! I got pictures and managed to record one of the rehearsals before I lost my voice. I've put the pics on my blog and then when my website is finished, you should be able to hear the recording on that.
Hopefully that will be good to go by the time I get home.

In the meantime, I spent most of this last week either in coachings and rehearsals, or in bed. So I didn't get out much, but I promise to do that before I leave. Only 2 more weeks. I am excited to be coming home. This has been a good experience and I still have some work to do, but I will be glad when it's done.
