So, about two weeks ago I got this email:
90% of the players will be union professionals from NY, so it will be a really fine orchestra directed by David Hamilton.
Several of the pieces will be from Michael's new instrumental CD which is awesome and was recorded by the London Philharmonic."
Wait. What? David Hamilton, the man I secretly curse because of the impossibility of some of his string orchestrations? The man who orchestrates all of MWS's work? The man who is a genius?
Wait? What? NYC union players? Me? Play? With them? At Carnegie?
So all that to say, I'm headed back to New York, New York. For the third time. To take in more 5th Avenue, to see more Broadway shows, to travel and hang out with one of my oldest friends (who gets to sing with us too!) and to play at Carnegie Hall. Again.

I'm in awe. I don't know how this is happening to me. I feel like it shouldn't happen to me. But it is. I feel like the
luckiest most blessed girl in the world.
Thank you Lord for this talent. Thank you Lord for parents who saw the value in musical education. Thank you Lord for this opportunity. ALL glory be to Him.
