It’s sunny in New York City

June 15, 2019—It’s sunny in New York City, and I am here as a chaperone with a choir from Lincoln High School of San Jose, CA. The young choristers perform tonight at the National Concerts music festival program at Carnegie Hall. It’s so exciting!

I was invited to come along by director Anne-Marie Katemopoulos, who I met at a choral conductors conference a few summers ago.

We have seen seen two shows—“King Kong” and “Beetlejuice “—and independently we stood in line for discounted tickets to “My Fair Lady” at the tickets booth in Times Square.

While the choir was in rehearsal, we chaperones had free time in The Big Apple.

Seven chaperones total: me, Vanessa, Mike, Heidi, Peggy, and Andrea. (Missing: Garret). Most had students assigned to them. I was invited as an “extra overall.”  Some of the “chaps” were parents, others were connected to the school. Stay tuned for my next post from Carnegie Hall!
