Great Video: Harrison Ford on Acting

I think this 1-minute clip about an actor's vulnerability is wonderful.  It is from the 250th episode of Inside the Actors Studio.

Well said, Mr. Ford!

The Big Move/Voice Concert Video

We are getting ready for the big move to Alabama!  I am excited to get started in the MFA in Acting program at the University of Alabama, and looking forward to meeting the other students.  This fall I will be taking Stage Dialects, Theatre History, Period Acting Styles, and Singing.  Really, those are my classes?  I have to take them?  This girl is happy!

Being part of the cast of Godspell last month was a very special experience, and I will cherish the memories of it.

In other news, I saw that the video is online for the voice concert I was a part of here in Tulsa with The bART Center for Music.  Click here for the concert link.  My piece, Puccini's O, Mio Babbino Caro, runs from 53:27-55:43.

While I do not see myself pursuing opera in the near future, I learned so much from John Townsend, my voice teacher, through the classical foundations of voice.  And I have to admit, it was fun to sing a bit of Italian opera--it took me back to a semester I spent in Tuscany in college.
