Wow, where has the first year at the Conservatoire gone, it’s flown by. We had our end of year ball, on Monday 10th June, which was simply fabulous, I don’t go partying much, so I enjoy a big spectacular party with all my friends and the Hilton in Glasgow proved a fantastic location. Even though I couldn’t boogie-on-down as usual, because my foot was still giving me problems, there was plenty of lively company and a great send off for our academic year.
I had my end of year review the following morning with the Head of Vocals, Stephen Robertson, so I’m still buzzing with excitement with my head full of plans for the Summer and the next academic year. I went to the swimming pool with a group of friends which was great, but not strenuous enough for me though as I really enjoy my exercise, afterwards we all went out for Pizza 🙂
I’ve always enjoyed school, 6th form college and now studying at the Conservatoire so long Summer holidays aren’t necessarily something I look forward to because I get bored easily, however, I plan to keep myself very busy with Summer concerts, competitions, vocal practice and work !
I had an exciting day yesterday, Wednesday 12th June, I had a master class with the group of students for final preparations for our trip to Italy, with Kathleen McKellar Ferguson and Patricia Hay. The class was brilliant and I would like to pass on our thanks and appreciation to them both.
I then caught a train to Dumbreck, to the Sherbrooke-St Gilbert’s Church to record the Les Sirenes CD which will be out this Christmas. The church was beautiful having been fully restored following a serious fire in 1994. I was particularly taken by a beautiful stained glass window which was titled the “Phoenix” resurrection window.
Now what do I pack for the trip? So much to choose from and so little room 🙂
