Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

The day after Verdi’s “Requiem”

The reason I had to haste away after the Verdi Requiem was to get back to Tasmania in time to attend Imogen and Josh’s end of year guitar concert. This annual event is organised by their guitar teacher, and features his students performing some of the material they have been working on during the year.

Imogen performed one of her own compositions;

Josh played bass;

with Imogen accompanying on drums;

and at the end of the concert — after several minutes of setting up and getting all the leads connected to the amps — all the students get together for a cheerful and loud rendition of some piece that accommodated all their capabilities.

I can’t remember what piece it was this year … but it was a definite contrast to Verdi. 😉

Oh, and in an important continuation of a tradition, Imogen prepared decorated cupcakes for the refreshments, just as her Mum had done for previous concerts.
