We’ve been a bit silent here on the blog for a while. As the season changes, and our schedules along with it, here is an update about what to expect in the near future from Nathan and the Birds.
After Nathan’s second spring student recital this coming Tuesday, he will have officially wrapped up another year of voice lessons through Waconia High School, Prior Lake High School, and his own private studios at home and at Colonial Church of Edina.
Beginning this week he will be primarily teaching at our home studio in Northeast Minneapolis, while maintaining the Edina and Prior Lake studios as well. This allows for a much broader and more flexible schedule. Click on this link or open this pdf (Call for voice students Summer 2014 (general memo)for information about purchasing summer lessons. We are using sort of a punch-card system this year. Check it out. Pass it on. Sign up!
Nathan and I are looking forward to performing together in two weddings late in June. Wedding gigs have always been one of our favorite things – in fact it was doing this sort of thing together that kept us so connected when we first became friends 12 years ago (yikes!).
Know of anyone looking for voice or piano music for a late summer or fall wedding? We’re game!
Details aren’t being made public quite yet, but based on the success of last year’s A Summer Night Romance concerts, it’s fair to say that there are plans brewing. Nathan has been working with a growing team of professionals to help develop his processes as a concert producer. Expect great things to be happening as the year unfolds.
On Sunday, June 8, there will be a fun jazz concert with the Apollo Male Chorus and the George Maurer Group. Nathan has been working as one of their section leaders and will be singing with them on this event. See link above for tickets, and let us know if you’ll be there!
As always, check out the events page for info about upcoming productions involving Nathan.
Our monthly newsletters have been on hiatus as well, but we are reviving them soon, like within a couple days soon. If you’re not sure if you’re on the list, sign up here. If you don’t get around to doing that until after we’ve sent it out, you’ll be able to find it on the archive page, and I’ll be sure to get you on the list for the next one. This next May/June edition will share more about how we have each been engaged professionally in the recent past, as well as more about summer plans.
The girls (and Nathan) are pretty excited about bringing another boy into the family.
And if that newsletter doesn’t end up getting to you in the next few days like I ‘promised,’ it’s probably because we decided to take a vacation at the hospital. Our baby boy is due to arrive around June 9 (which also happens to be our wedding anniversary), but this mama would be really ok with any time now.
Thanks for following and supporting us on this journey – both professionally and personally!
Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather.
~Naomi, for both of us
