Gratefulness, thankfulness, and positive thoughts. We intentionally make time at every rehearsal to reflect with appreciation upon the people who support DragonDiva productions. How wonderful it is that there are all kinds of folks who choose to demonstrate their support in a variety of ways!
Driving home from rehearsal tonight, I thought how grateful I am for the patience of Johanna, who smiled encouragingly as I learned the very basic choreography she had outlined for me. I thought with appreciation of Jeanine, who helped me with executing the moves and pacing more effectively. Every time I looked toward Diana at the piano, she nodded back reassuringly. Candide began to take shape tonight, with all its respective pieces falling into place. I am so grateful for this opportunity to learn and grow as an opera singer. I am grateful for the terrifically talented people I am working alongside. And I am grateful for those who give time and provide funding to make this production of Candide possible. ~Cathy
