So our run with the Harmony Sweepstakes is over and even though we didn't win, we are tremendously proud of all we accomplished in the 10 weeks since Tall Claire sent an email forwarding a notice from the HSS organizers, prefaced with two simple words: "Shall we..??"
These 2 words launched a flurry of activity that saw us...
-- finish up 2 tracks to support our submission, and then 3 more to round out our first EP (with beautiful cover artwork created by our own Rue-Becca)
-- create 3 brand new original arrangements, 2 of which we got to sing last night
-- launch this website and our Facebook page!
-- enjoy some wonderful coaching sessions and practice performances with dear friends, and a memorable weekend working on music in the mountains, thanks to the generosity of one lovely friend
-- perform at a beautiful theater in SF in front of an informed and appreciative crowd and alongside some truly class acts
We executed our program the best probably we've ever done it, and we had a lot of really nice comments from people we met after the show. In fact, the organizer said that we had been close contenders for Audience Favorite -- that usually they empty out the voting boxes and it's clear who's won but this year they had to count.
So it just remains for us to THANK EVERYONE for your votes last night, and for the amazing support and encouragement we have received on this wild ride. It's whetted our appetite to do more...
Watch this space! Xoxox
