Victoria Theodore: January Performances

"Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still.

This one time upon the earth,
let's not speak any language,
let's stop for one second,
and not move our arms so much..."

"Ahora contaremos doce
y nos quedamos todos quietos.
Por una vez sobre la tierra
no hablemos en ningun idioma,
por un segundo detengamonos,
no movamos tanto los brazos..."

"A callarse (Keeping Quiet)" - Pablo Neruda

A vague reference to 2012, I know, but I thought it conveyed the sense of stillness I've been craving. Stillness which yields abundant creativity and art. I've been writing more than ever, and am excited about the music I'm long last! I plan to be recording soon and will upload music for you all to hear. I hope you all love my music as much as I do! I don't have much on the calendar yet, but I do have a performance with the Oakland Public Conservatory Symphony Orchestra this coming Sunday. I hope to see you there!
