This week was a whirlwind (no pun intended) as I took a quick trip to Northern Illinois to sing with the Rockford Wind Ensemble for their summer pops series. The conductor of the group is also the pit orchestra director for the Freeport, Illinois high school musicals. We last worked together in 2008, so this invitation was incredibly special especially because Tim Connors, my drama and speech team coach, was there too, along with an old high school classmate, Zach Masa-Meyers. So fun, so wonderful!
