Janet will be available for voice lessons Monday evening, September 20, at a reduced rate. We are very fortunate to have this lovely, gracious lady share her knowledge with us: plan to be there!

If you've ever been in a UAB Opera production, or hope to be in one this year, come see some old friends and make new ones. Joe and I will bring the kayaks and spring for the cost of the pavilion. Everyone bring a little something to share: a salad, hotdogs, soda, or whatever: sign-ups for food will be posted here soon. Friend me on Facebook and RSVP there. We'll nail down a real time frame later when we know what works for everyone. Bring your bathing suits or hiking shoes, kick back, and let's start the school year off right!
