I’m back from my trip to the UK, and honestly, I kind of wish I were still there. Sometimes I go places, and I think, “I could live here.” My husband will say that I always say that, but it’s not true. I definitely could not live in New Orleans (hurricanes!). I love Key West,Continue reading “I’m BACK”

Borle & Hicks – Together Again!
Last year, Mezzoid Voice Studio hosted actors Christian Borle and Adrianna Hicks as the master clinicians for World Voice Weekend. Their master classes were incredible, and they offered terrific insight for their singers. We were fortunate enough to get them, in large part because Broadway was shut down. Now that the Great White Way hasContinue reading “Borle & Hicks – Together Again!”

Changing my Vision
I have been very good at writing regularly for the past year. I did decide to go from thrice weekly to twice weekly in 2021, and I’ve kept to that. Till this week. I missed Tuesday.

WVW Early Bird Registration Ends March 31!
World Voice Weekend Early Bird registration ends March 31! I’ll admit it, after an initial flurry of signups, registration is going more slowly than I hoped. Which is baffling to me, because people have responded to this program as follows: Unfortunately, I’m not hearing, “Take my money!” I have enough people to fill the masterclasses, butContinue reading “WVW Early Bird Registration Ends March 31!”
