It seems as though that all life is made up of right now. Well, my life, at any rate.
Have found out that the Royal Pitches have been accepted back into the 2007 Season of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). The unfortunate thing is that the Quarterfinal Round the group has been assigned to is on February 24, 2007, at Lafayette College in Easton, PA, which is a good six-hour drive away from Buffalo. And as nobody has the time or money to travel all the way there, it has been agreed upon to try and have the group reassigned to either Syracuse University or Penn State University, which is at least reasonably closer. But then if the group is reassigned, then the Quarterfinal Round would be on February 3. And therein lies the dilemma.
A production company called Massimo Gallotta Productions is presenting a concert featuring Ennio Morricone’s work. Ennio Morricone is one of the greatest film music composers, and this is the first time he’s having a concert in the U.S. The concert is to be held on February 3, 2007 in Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall, and will be televised worldwide, featuring performers like the cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Metallica. Professor Rosenbaum from Choir has been asked to bring in a group of singers, and besides his professional choirs, he’s also planning to bring the UB Choir. Am hoping to be accepted into the group, as this is a huge event, and there’s a chance we might be singing at the United Nations on February 2, which hasn’t been confirmed yet, but is just as significant.
Two events, one date. Which one to go for?
Speaking of which, here’s our CD cover:
