I applied for my first real job as an adjunct teacher of one section of Music Appreciation at a local community college.

There’s no way I get this job, but it was nice to finally submit a real job application for once.

Took Remy in for her first vet appointment today, and she tested positive for FIV. We were always going to take extra-special care of her, but we’re glad to get this news now while she’s young so that we can give her everything she needs.

Sick kitties. It’s heartbreaking.

Remy around 6AM.

OWTMS: Part Deux

Ives:

The Things Our Fathers Loved

Tom Sails Away

The World’s Highway

Barber:

Sleep now

Nocturne

Sure on this shining night

Religion

Mirage

Walt Whitman

Encore is going to be Dougherty’s “Serenader” because the Barber is emotionally dense and the Ives is a little peculiar and the poor audience needs something pretty to hear at the end of this thing. Around 52 minutes of music, which is a lot.

Official dates:
July 17, 6PM - The Heritage at Lowman
**no Knoxville on this concert

July 19, 7:30PM - St. Peter’s Catholic Church (on Assembly)

Back to this press release. If there is a world in which I don’t have to write my own press releases anymore, I want to go to there now.

ALSO I really hope people get the reference in the recital’s title. Much precious, very idea.

Summer Recital

Hopefully in Columbia, either July 17 and 19 or July 24 and 26. Here’s the program:

Of What The Masses Sing: Songs of God, Songs of Memory

Ives:
The Things Our Fathers Loved
Tom Sails Away
The World’s Highway

Barber:
Sleep now
Nocturne
Sure on this shining night

Ives:
At the River
The Cage
Religion
Mirage
Walt Whitman
Abide With Me

Barber:
Knoxville: Summer of 1915

Copeland:
Pastorale

Yeah? Is my theme sort of apparent? Does it kind of make sense? I know it’s a lot of Ives and Barber, but, I mean, a concert of American composers seems like it will probably go over well in The Deep South. Input is welcome.
