Six Performances

Current mental soundtrack: random selections from Sleeping Beauty, by Tchaikovsky.

Just got back from watching B's evening performance. She did a great job, and it was fun to finally see her on stage for an extended period. When kids first start performing in ballets, they're usually on stage for about a minute, and then they're gone. The entire second half of tonight's program was Sleeping Beauty, and she was in the opening number (4:48 according to the track list the stage managers were given), then stayed on stage as background throughout the first half of the work. (Did a good job acting, too.) She has one more performance tomorrow afternoon, which I won't see because I'll be at the Voci concert.

Checklist for tomorrow (I have to remember all of this when I leave in the morning):
  • Ticket for morning pre-ballet show
  • Money for lunch with B (she's requested Bongo Burger)
  • Campus parking permits for lunchtime parking ease
  • Voci concert outfit (top, skirt, socks, shoes)
  • Silver jewelry for concert
  • Makeup
  • Hair stuff (curling iron, styling creme, hair clip, bobby pins, etc.)
  • Water bottle
  • Music
  • Snack for self before concert
  • Shaker for possible use in one piece
  • Caramel pecan brownies for intermission bake sale
  • Dinner (t.b.a.)
  • Warm jacket & scarf 
  • Black top & black jeans for evening ballet show (assistant stage manager). Keep black concert shoes & socks
  • Notes for ballet show
DH is on chauffeur duty--he will be dropping B off at the ballet school at 8:30 tomorrow morning, then returning there at 2:00 with three of B's friends and my sister. After he drives everyone home (including B), he and the kids are going to a party at a colleague's house.
