Yes, I've retired and it's not exactly what I thought it would be. I'm doing a lot more traveling and a lot less singing. I really thought I'd be in at least three choirs now and doing the occasional side gig, Instead, I'm enjoying traveling and not really missing the singing.
Singing has been my salvation and my passion for the last 35 years and suddenly, BOOM, its not so important anymore. (Oh, someone please wash my mouth out with soap)!
So, Jubilate is having a concert and I'm not singing. How weird. Instead, I'll be in the audience listening and clapping like crazy.
The concert is this coming Sunday, May 18th, at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 1385 Spring Lane, Salt Lake City, Utah. Time is 7:00 pm and admission is free, though contributions are gladly accecpted. The St. Vincent de Paul Schola is also performing. I miss singing with them also, but I do enjoy being able to travel without worry about concert scheduling.
This doesn't mean I've quit singing entirely. I'm definitely doing the 9-11 concert and maybe Summer Singers but as soon as the 9-11 is over, I'm off again for another two months to see relatives back east.
Here's a map to the church and a picture:
