Broadway Next? November 10, 2013

Rönninge Show Chorus, GoldAnd the winner is…. Rönninge Show Chorus, from the Nordic Region! Rönninge Show Chorus won gold in the world championship of barbershop singing, in Honolulu Saturday November 9, 2013.  They received the highest score in history. Keep spreading the news…

Gosh – I am smiling as I see the video from the performance in the final.

1) To me barbershop has always been such an american style of singing – the clothing, make-up, everything around it. And actually, living in the US now, it still seems – a tad different.

2) I’m seeing a lot of faces from the old times 18 years ago – this choir (132 on stage) has members in the age of 16 to who knows 75?

3) It’s a solid musical performance – and what is the theme?????!!!!?!?!?!? Can’t believe it. As it has been my theme this fall.  In the final package shown in the video below from the webcast the choir performs 4 songs. The show-tunes start at 12min 25s.

New York next? Maybe re-joining this choir, would be the quickest way to Broadway. 😉 Not kidding. I wonder if I would make it in the audition for the spot in the middle of the front row again. Imagine the wall of sound coming over you being in the very middle of 150 singers… Pretty amazing.

My vote is: Broadway next.

September 11, 2013. Today, exact 12 years ago, I was one hour from a layover in New York in the air.

We returned to Ireland, as we were not allowed to enter the US air space.

A very special time to move to the US.

A commitment of 4 months – max 9 – at a non profit, became 12 years including 8 years in finance for a pharma company, and 4 years of running my own business Herringbone – marketing business expanding your footprint. Making voices heard for positive change.

And today, I find myself in New York. Having represented a Swedish eco-friendly designer Anna Oels-Lindell, GreenBlackDress and showcased an Italian shoe line for hard to find larger sizes LLXLLQ that I launched for a client during the last year, on two different runways, during New York Fashion Week.

Life is indeed fascinating if you allow it to take you places. And, if you make them happen.

New York, New York.

New York by night. I glance down the street as I cross the way on the way home. Furthest up, is an ad on Broadway, that fully resonates with me and the moment: “The Further I Get, The Further I Want to Go.”

And I say like Jay Alexander: “it only gets better.”
