Just when you thought Summer Camp was Over….YPO Rocks it in Miami!

So for fun- you all know I have told you about The Young Patronesses of the Opera (YPO) that I have been blessed to be asked to be a part of in Miami.  Its a group of [opera-loving] women who get together to put on events and activities that raise money and awareness of the opera for our community.  One of the neatest things is that the opera has programs that teach kids about this great art with our “In School Opera’s!”.

 

So- just when things start getting serious- the YPO members have made it a tradition that all incoming YPO members (called Provisionals in our first year) have to put on a SKIT (!!!!- OMG) in September at the member meeting.  With this SKIT comes a song that WE have to sing (OMG!!!!) :)…so THANK GOD for motivated women like our beloved Emeline- who finished this song at 12:30AM last night to the theme of Masquerade.  AH GEEZ….she can sing- now all we have to do is learn the song ourselves and we are GOLDEN! :)…no probs.  No probs.   (For reals!!!!)…think- its kind of like Summer camp when we were kids- just a lot cooler…costumes, music, wine- great friends and songs! – what could be better?! (and wine, and costumes, a friends and…)

So when you are off this Summer on your family vacation somewhere- THIS is what I will be doing! (learning this song!!!)….ahhhh…for the love of opera! xoxo- wow…maybe I should work on making a CD?!…okay.  Maybe not 🙂  Either way- COME JOIN US IN MIAMI!!!!!!! 🙂
