March 2--HOT METAL MUSICALS!
January update: Steph brought everyone up-to-date on Hot Metal Musicals, including a draft revision for the look of this website. Chuck Sperry presented a solo from Lazarus which was well received; the comments were mostly on lyrics. Then with Doug Levine at the keyboard David Michael King sang a new song for what's being tentatively called his Great-Train-Robbery musical. Expanded roles for the woman singing the song dominated the discussion.
At that point singers were arriving for a two-hour rehearsal for Hot Metal Musicals and quickly took over the meeting, again with Doug at the keyboard working closely with the singers. Those who stayed for the rehearsal got an education in song-crafting and had a remarkably good time as well.
Joe Domencic's The Next Galileo, has begun its tour of middle-schools in the region as part of the CLO's Gallery of Heroes program. The title song is to be included in Hot Metal Musicals.
