I am having a blast! I’m keeping up with my 2 one hour voice lessons a week and it is amazing!!! And I’m still taking piano lessons…and playing with the chamber ensemble at school! It is loads of wicked awesome fun!
I have had some grand performances!!! One of the best ones was my performance at the Macy’s department store in Bangor! I hope to have some video clips up for you to see…just as soon as I find my lost cable that connects my camera to my computer…lol…ooooppps! Lol!
I’m loving my junior year in high school! It is soooo much fun! I love my AP history and English classes…and drawing is a complete blast…and of course chorale is always fun…and believe it or not…math isn’t all that bad…I have the new teacher at the school…Mr. Murphy…lol…no relation…he is a great teacher! Chemistry is ok…but a tad boring…hopefully it will pick up!!!
I have also been investigating colleges to attend! Anybody have any suggestions? My major of course would be voice.
My new website is done…it is just waiting for some new clips from my CD. I hope to have that up this weekend!!! So keep an eye out for that and make sure to tell me how you like it!!!
What has everybody been up to?
Yes for all who want to know I did get Billy Gilman’s new CD! It is great! I also got Joshua Bell’s new CD…he is amazing! I’m very excited about Josh Groban’s new CD which will be out in Nov. Yaaay! Believe it or not…I have ideas for my next CD! Hahah and don’t worry…it won’t take as long for this one…I don’t think…lol! Do you guys have any songs that you would like me to consider recording sometime? I’d like to see your suggestions! You have all been so awesome!!!
Thanks everybody for all of the support…and thanks for those who have created me fan sites!!! You have no idea how much it means to me!!! It tickles me pink to find an e-mail waiting for me telling me about a new fan site and showing the wicked awesome support you guys show toward my developing music career! You are AMAZING!!!! You all deserve front row seats to my concerts!!! Lol! Keep your fingers crossed and pray heaps and oodles for my career!!! It’s the people like you that make an individual’s career take off!!!
Wow...where do I begin! Can't wait to see the clips from Macy's opening day! Looking forward to your site!
Glad that school is going well for you and that you are looking at colleges. I found that it helped to visit as many as possible; also talk with the students there. Some colleges offer high school students the opportunity to sit in a class.
Actually, it's YOU that is amazing! I'm so proud of you, K. That will be a long front row at your concerts. I think we'll be too busy clapping and giving you standing ovations so we won't even need seats!
Sounds like you are well on your way to achieving great things. It will be great to see the new website and the video clips.
As for colleges, hmm. Well, there's New England Conservatory and UMass, but I'm sure you're already on them. I know Rutgers here in NJ has a pretty good voice program, but maybe that's farther away than you'd like to go. New York is full of opportunities, but I know very little about specifics.
As for songs that I'd like to hear you record, well, there are a lot, but, hmm, from the classical area I'd like to hear "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth" from Messiah, and maybe the hymns "Calon Lan" (A Clean Heart) and "Beautiful Star, which I think is perfect for both your voice and your message. Any number of Celtic songs would also fit your voice, but probably the standards like "Danny Boy" and "Last Rose" would be a good place to start.
And wrt new CDs, there are also Ronan Tynan's and Salvatore Licitra's which both just hit, if you're into tenors.
I would definitely be a taker on the front row seats if you are willing, with flowers in hand.

Hi there everybody!!!
I have video clips for you all to see...only one slight problem My program/internet server is being a tad dumb and it is not letting me update my website. If anybody has a place to upload the videos to I could e-mail them to you. Other than that, I guess you will have to wait a bit Which is sad!
Here are my upcoming performances since I can't get my site to work waaaa-
October- 13th- 1:30pm at the Ellen Leach Home, Brewer ME 15th- Forrest Ave. Congregational Church, Bangor ME 24th- 5:30pm Solo Ensemble night John Bapst High School, Bangor ME December- 3rd- Forrest Ave. Congregational Church 10th John Bapst High School's Holiday Concert 24th- East Orrington Congregational Church, Orrington ME
There might be more added
What is everybody up to? How about the new group All Angels? They seem to be wicked good! I think I might get their CD when it comes out!
Next weekend equals photo shoot! yayy...should be fun...and you should see all of the leaves....beautiful! Last photo shoot was in the summer....It will be neat to have this one in the fall...although...depending on how cold it is....any barefoot pictures will be taken indoors...lol!
Sounds like you will be busy, but that's good. It shows you're in demand. We'll be glad to see the website when it is updated, and the new photoshoot should be good - lots and lots of color, we're only just now getting ours in NJ. And try not to get too cold, blue skin tone doesn't suit you. i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif

How are things going? Just stopping by to give a little update. I got back from Hartford CT this past Monday. I had an amazing time. I soloed at a huge church, was interviewed by WJMJ radio, and had a tour of the Hartt School which is part of University of Hartford.
I hope to have a video for you to see sometime sooner rather than later Wink Also, Teen Grace Music and I are going to be putting together a street team. If you are interested in helping out please let me know Smiley We would love for you to be part of the team!
Post soon! I haven't heard from many of you lately
