It's snowing outside today- so what better time to write a blog?! After such a fun and successful season in Dallas, it was hard to leave. It was especially difficult to say goodbye to lovely new friends. I think that might be the hardest part of the job! I'm in Chicago right now, a beautiful, if cold, city! I was lucky enough to see Il Trovatore at the Lyric Theatre last night- I don't think I could ever get sick of that music. The theatre itself is full of character. You'd be hard pressed to find a better preserved Art Deco theatre.

It was so lovely to catch up with Michael Black also. He is the current chorus master here in Chicago (lucky them!), and I love having the chance to catch up with friends around the world- even though I don't enjoy having to say goodbye!

So Chicago for a few mor days, and then off to New York. One of the cities of my heart, I cannot wait to return. But for now it's off to brave the cold and explore Chicago a little more!
