An Evening with the Madrigal Singers

On Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, at 7:00 pm, I attended this year's colorful and tuneful "An Evening with the Madrigal Singers:  from madrigals to musical theater."

To appreciate the color, take a look at the two sets of photographs posted--for your viewing and downloading pleasure--on Flickr:  Images from Friday and from Saturday.

To open the show, the Madrigal Singers entertained with some traditional songs, and you can watch their performance from both nights, for I recorded a few of the numbers for your delight, including "The Silver Swan" and "I Delight in All Your Beauty":  

 The singers also delighted the audiences with a couple a sampling
of some wonderful music from famous Broadway musicals, including The Sound of Music, South Pacific, The King and I, and Carousel.

I divided these performances into two
separate videos.  Part One includes four songs from the Sound Of Music that many of you will have no trouble recognizing, including "The Sound of Music" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain"

 Part Two contains "There is Nothin' Like a Dame" from South Pacific, "Hello Young Lovers" from The King and I, and three songs from Carousel, including "If I Loved You."

 Each of these annual presentations also features a number of duets and solo performances.  This year, Dr. Ediger asked me to make recordings of the senior performances, and so I made separate videos of four performances.
The first performance features Jacob Buss and A. J. Thompson singing "Stepsisters' Lament" from Cinderella:

 Taylor Sirman entertained the audience with "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful" also from Cinderella:


Jacob Acers entertained with the only song of the evening not written by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II, "Being Alive" from Stephen Sondheim's Company:

And rounding out these special numbers from seniors, Matthew Jergens offered a fun-filled version of "That's the Way It Happens" from State Fair:

At this time it appears like Movable Type is the top blogging
platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Everything published was very reasonable. However, what about this?
suppose you were to create a killer title? I mean,
I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean "An Evening with the Madrigal Singers" is a
little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article titles to get people interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've written.

Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question
that I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how
you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

I've had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
