I'm off to Monroe with my husband to play our next pops concert!  If you're in the area, check out our Frank Sinatra concert on Saturday night. There will be tables set up to bring your own delicious food and it will be a fun time.

Last weekend, I performed in a chamber music concert with the Camerata Winds. The concert was called "Colors of the Winds" and featured recent woodwind quintet arrangements with different colors in the titles such as Dreams of the White Tiger, Blues for Woodwind Quintet, Red Lights!, Pink Panther, March from The Love of Three Oranges, Pink Panther, and The Frog and the Golden Ball. We each dressed in a different color to match the theme.

I also was able to participate in a few races! I ran the Paris, Texas half marathon which was delightful! The course went through picturesque trails, over bridges, and passed by the Eiffel Tower which was complete with a red cowboy hat on top. I also volunteered as a St. Patrick's Day 5k and got to help run some of the timing and finish line activities.

Our last Monroe Symphony concert was a lot of fun and since it was right before Mardi Gras, I was able to enjoy some king cake and crawfish etouffee. Delicious! It was also nice to have a little downtime to enjoy a walk through the beautiful Black Bayou Wildlife refuge and catch up on some reading. I'll be back in a few weeks for our Simply Sinatra pops concert.

This week and next week I'm in the Dallas area performing with Camerata Winds and will make a quick trip up to Paris, Texas to run the half marathon there. Paris has its own Eiffel Tower with a cowboy hat on top of it so what's not to love about that?
