Victoria Theodore May Performances

May your days be many and your troubles be few. May all God's blessings descend upon you. May peace be within you may your heart be strong. May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam.”

It's May (almost) and we've already been experiencing an abundance of beautiful flowers, blue skies and (mostly) warm weather. Technically, more rain would be good in this perpetually semi-arid Northern California climate I'm so attached to, but I won't complain!

This month, I've got lots of performances and it always is a joy to see your beautiful, smiling faces in the audience. Marcello's Restaurant is an "open mic" gig, so let your inner superstar shine, and come out, have dinner and sing / play / dance with me! It'll be fun. Be sure to bring sheet music, if you have it. I can read anything, but if you don't have sheet music, no worries, as I can also play virtually anything by ear.

Speaking of reading, I've been rehearsing some awesome musical works ("Dismal Swamp" by William Grant Still and "Appalachian Spring" by Aaron Copland) with the OPC Chamber Orchestra in Oakland. We're performing on May 31. I'm excited about performing with an orchestra again, and am enjoying the process!

I'm also heading to Morocco towards the end of the month, so if you happen to be in Northern Africa, let me know! It'll be my first trip to the continent, so I'm super excited!
