It's the Holiday Season
2 Jan 2014
Bianca Hall, musician & educator
Which usually means running all over town for various concerts and church gigs until Christmas. This year, I ended up doing 3 Advent Lessons and Carols services, for St. Matthew's Anglican Church, where I am a staff singer, and for both Blessed Sacrament Episcopal Church and Blessed John Henry Newman Catholic Church as the Tallis Chapel Society's soprano. It was such a treat to be able to sing so much great music for all three of these services, and I know that I'm very lucky to have had these opportunities. I also joined the choirs of St. John Fischer Church for their holiday concert that featured Bach's Magnificat. It always amazes me how many choral works Bach wrote. There are so many that I still have yet to do the same one twice! Lastly, I sang for St. Matthew's 11pm midnight mass on Christmas Eve.

In between gigs, I kept busy by getting back into craft making! I love using the excuse that I'm learning new skills to make crafts! This year, I made homemade marshmallows, cookies (not a new skill, but I always have requests), a few photo-to-canvas projects, and homemade beeswax & sweet almond oil hand salve, and I enjoyed making them all. Check out a photo of the jarred marshmallows with handmade labels:

Now that New Years has passed (Happy New Year!), it's almost time to get back to preparations for the coming final semester, which brings with it not only USC performances, but also several projects outside of school. More news to come...
