Thanks to all!

Just a note to let everyone know that our evening show went off without a hitch! The students did very well and the community enjoyed the event.

Thank you Dean, Sherri and Anne for the support and help in developing all the aspects of these operas. We appreciate all the libretto, prop and staging ideas that you gave to help make this process successful.

Dean, best of luck with your summer operas! Have a good summer, Sherri and Anne!

Bravo tutti!

Today was a real rush! From the buzz in the gym before rehearsal right through this afternoon's shows. It amazes me how much was accomplished in such a short time. As well, I've never had the chance to sit back and enjoy the show. Extra kudos to all those talented students who took on the job of orchestra!

This was really something for you should all feel very proud about.

As well, it was a real pleasure working with Sherri. Thanks everyone for a great experience!

Bravo Everyone!

Congratulations everyone! John, Becky, Rob and Melanie, you all put in an amazing amount of work throughout the project. The quality of the Operas are testament to yours and the students commitment. This afternoon's performance was fantastic. I hope you can all find a moment to sit back, savour the success, and just relax!

I'd like to thank you and the students for such an enjoyable experience at St. Mark's.

Tomorrow's Music

Bravo on some wonderful scores, all. We have a few things to add to Ms. Moore's class, and I have written some additional music. We should try to find a bit of extra time to incorporate it. Excited to see the premieres!

The Final Day

Hi Everyone,

Wow, it's hard to believe we are already at the end of this project. I just wanted to let you know that I spoke with Zoe today and she let me know that Katherine Semcesen will be coming out to the school tomorrow to enjoy our final afternoon performances. Katherine will also be bringing a COC intern along with her.

Looking forward to seeing the final products!
