Time for a Break!

It is high time for a break! More specifically, a reading week break! A full week without early morning classes, assignments and major commitments! Is it sad to say I've been waiting for this since the beginning of January?

Anyway, my reading week break will be filled with the following activities:
  • Heading to Montreal to visit my dear friend, Leanne, whom I sang with in Con Fuoco and Jeremy, her lovely husband
  • Meet up with Canadian composer, Donald Patriquin, for a tour of the McGill music department-yay for connecting with awesome music people though blog comments!
  • Shop at Simons-yes, this is totally unrelated to music or choir... but I'm still a girl... and girls shop when they travel :)
  • Drinking hot chocolate and eating copious amounts of Montreal deli sandwiches
  • Coming back home to perform in the Cantilon Broadway Gala's performance of Fiddler on the Roof
I'll be back just in time for the Broadway Gala performance. If you read my post on it last year, you can bet it'll be a fun evening indeed. We do the dress rehearsal that afternoon and the performance that evening. I'm missing all of the blocking rehearsals next week leading up to the performance, but thankfully, we blocked Belle Canto's main numbers and for the other group pieces I can easily assimilate myself into the background. I know my notes and words so I'm not worried.

Take care and stay warm (for those in chilly climates like mine!)

I'll definitely be blogging when I'm in Montreal next week so stay tuned!

Don't forget to think about your stylish older sister when you're at Simon's!

Also, I would highly recommend food and drink at Reservoir. And for super fois gras fat. Go to Au pied de cochon.

And don't forget to shop St. Denis!

Omg you have to go to Juliette et Chocolat while you're in Montreal :) And eat some bagels :)

There is nothing better than a break from school. It gives you time to refresh.
