Oh my god. I’m almost in tears. (In a moved, happy sort of way). This group that performed at the end of the conference banquet, the Amazing Blue, sung extremely well. I’m usually like the the filthy critic when it comes to commenting about (other) singers, but these people were just so awesome. They were different, young, fresh, had awesome voice modulation …
I can’t even begin to describe their awesomeness. (I don’t mean to abuse that line, it’s just, the way I feel about things at the moment.) I can’t believe the first time I actually bought theater tickets to a non-movie thing, and it happens to be clashing with the day AND TIME this group performs next at Rackham. Hmm, will have to investigate a bit and find out when and where they’re up next. It will be totally worth it.
This people, was the highlight of the conference. 15 minutes before they came on, it was the dessert. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. (Actually come to think of it, eating stuff as rich as that will result in death, heaven’s another story). The banquet meal was nice too, nicer cause you know you got to choose it :). Being one of the only vegetarians around has its perks.
Also got to meet a bunch of wisc mad grad students at the banquet. Fun people, and now they’ve made me want to design and print cool business cards. Why you say? No reason, just for coolness’ sake. Why not? I say.
And I can’t believe I’ve wasted so much time not being a patron of music theater. Also need to find out from Eric when the music school people do their thing. I imagine that will be very good too.
