I just read that Scott Bearden took home first prize and audience favorite at the Irene Dalis Vocal Competition.

I’m not surprised, but I’m very happy to read this.

I didn’t go to the finals last night; I actually forgot about them completely until I went online at about 7:00 PM … and of course it was too late then to race down there. Oh well. Maybe next year …? (Maybe some year they’ll even have an orchestra playing for them. That would be fun!)

Speaking of competitions, we will be playing for the International Russian Piano Music Competition in a few weeks. I’ve never done anything like that before. We received a list of possible works … seven different concerti … and we will be told which three works we are actually doing prior to the first rehearsal. Should be interesting!
