Take a look at the good news from NATS this past weekend!
In the past month, I have fielded two extraordinary requests.
About a month ago, a local law firm rang me. “We’d like to hire you to be an expert witness in a case involving a music professor at another school.” And so it was that wrote a long brief, and billed the law firm for my time and expertise.
The firm told me last week that my writing was a key ingredient in them winning the case.
Today I received a request from a professor at another private university. “May I please have reprint permission to use a photo you took at the Twigworth church in Gloucestershire? I want to use it in a book that I’m writing.” Of course I granted permission.
Who knows what people will find on the Web!?
We made the New York Times!
In these programs, students hop from country to country, earning an undergraduate degree in the process.
Yup. We are indeed one of America’s best colleges for study abroad!!
Several years ago, at a different school in a different state, I got the call to have my students sing back-up for Kenny Rogers on a Christmas concert. And we got our photo taken with the big guy himself. I shook his hand, and we were off.
On Monday evening, Trent Patterson and the Webster University Chamber Singers had a similar experience with a different mega-star, Josh Groban, on his tour promoting his new album. Dr. Patterson prepped the students, who then backed up JG as he sang “Anthem” from Chess and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel.
From Facebook comments, the students were deliriously happy. “Tonight was unreal,” said one. “Unbelievable,” said another.
Here’s a grab from Facebook:
And two official photos:
