Here are seven minutes of childrens' voices to brighten a chilly day:
2014 in song began with the 2013 Christmas Pageant's front row audience member former Governor Mario Cuomo, RIP. Rosemary's first musicals were Oklahoma! and The Wizard of Oz, in which the cast members got to choose their parts, so Rosemary was one of three Glendas, Good Witch of the North (an opening the opposite of "Macbeth"). This year, Rosemary joined the choir of the Church of the Heavenly Rest, which has started the curriculum of The Royal School of Music (I feel like the "Queen Mum" volunteering a little with choristers who sang in England last year!) This choir was invited to sing at the Met Museum's Angel Tree Lighting (not opera) and again at the 50th Anniversary of Charlie Brown. The only clip where Rosemary is not on stage is at the "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" audience singalong led by Garth Brooks, but it was too much a highlight of her year in song to leave out.
This string of iPhone clips is an improvement on my prior post. Next try will be clipping her scenes out of professional videos.
Thank you, Apple Store Genius Bar, for helping me clear the high-tech logjam. I'm off to play with all the new goodies on my laptop as I build The Manhattan Journal, which is under construction.
