If you wanna go musically crazy…

…just try playing an opera…by ear…on guitar, a guitar that you bowed, and a nylon play guitar, and a kid’s drum…lol. Well it started out that way but finally someone gave us a keyboard that had orchestra sounds and such…then other helpful things, like figured bass, and if you don’t know what that is…it’s a pretty crazy thing. Anyway, we were shoveling gravel making a wracket today and then stopped a minute and heard this beautiful voice, that instantly brings tears to my eyes, ringing up over our hill…our neighbor/ daughter, singing and weeding her garden. Reminded me of the opera she did, single-handedly, two ro three years back. It was tough…she named her opera company the B-Roke Opera Company…but times have been so busy I think she forgot to start a new opera…wondering if I should dare to remind her? Could I stand to do it again????? LOL. Here’s her first and only single-handed opera…September 14, 2019 at 8:20 PM #76672FrederickParticipant
Beautiful opera. What a lot of work and what a talented cast. From the technical production through the costumes and acting, absolutely delightful to watch and listen to. Thanks for posting this, Cricket. It’s so great!!!!September 14, 2019 at 9:25 PM #76673cricketParticipant
It was tough…took two or three years. I spent many 10 hour straight days at my presonus only to come out with 1 or 2 minutes of Purcell…send it over to Annie…she’d be like…WRONG…lol…or if I was lucky…OK, MOVE ON TO…blah blah whatever one next. Challenges every step of the way … but loads and loads of fun and I actually feel kinda lost that we aren’t doing another one…lol. Remind me to kick myself later if we do start another one any time soon.
