I Accept Cash, Checks, and Theme Park Tickets

One of my first gigs was accompanying the middle school chorale at Hershey Park when I was 12. After more than a decade of practicing, years of training at Juilliard, and a university education, I have booked a great gig for the spring.

I’m accompanying a school chorus at Six Flags New England.

Now, I might not be moving up in the world of music, but I am genuinely looking forward to this gig. This particular group of public schoolkids voluntarily rehearses before school twice a week and performed at Avery Fisher Hall last year. As a choral singer myself, seeing enthusiastic young choristers always warms my heart.

Unfortunately rehearsing before school means I have to wake up at an ungodly hour. I’ve never been a morning person, but I’ll fake it for a trip to the amusement park!
