Back from Santa Barbara

First of all, many thanks go to Ken, Karen, Chris and Christine for making my trip to Santa Barbara so enjoyable! I had a great time!

First of all, my audition went very well. I really felt that I sang close to the best of my ability, and that's no small feat at an audition where you have 5 minutes to impress. Unfortunately I did not impress enough to get a call back! I did not get to sing for the fabulous Marilyn Horne, but Warren Jones was heard my audition. He didn't look bored during my audition, at least I had that going for me.

The rest of my time in Santa Barbara was spent hanging out with Chris and Ken. Ken gave me a tour of the town, and we had lunch outside. This was follow by a fabulous dinner cooked by Ken and a long evening in the recording studio with Chris.

I had a great time and I'm looking forward to tech week for L'amico Fritz. (Check out an article about it here. More about the opera to come.)

Here are a couple of photo from my trip. You can see many more here.

That totally wore me out, but I had so much fun. I came home and slept until 2! I suppose that is what staying in the studio until 5:30 AM does to one. It was great to see you and I look forward to when we can have a little more time together. Nice pictures! You have to publish the one of me in standing in my office, I really like that one.
