What’s the topic this week on Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop? It’s creative outlets I enjoy.
My favorite outlet is music. I have been singing for my entire life. At first, I sang at church, then in the chorus of the community college I attended in Pennsylvania. After I graduated, I sang in several community choruses in Pennsylvania and in Florida.
At present, I am a member of the Symphonic Chorale of SW FL. We self-produce two concerts a year plus two events to which we invite community singers to participate. Coming up in August is Summer Sing where we will rehearse and perform Rutter’s Requiem in the space of a single evening. Next spring, we are hosting Coro Rapsodia, a chorus from Uruguay, for our annual Sing Out. It’s a similar process to the Summer Sing, but lasts two days.
In addition, we sing two concerts a year with the SW FL Symphony Orchestra, a Holiday Pops performance and a classical Masterworks concert.
In fact, it was while sitting on stage waiting to begin a program of operatic choruses that the idea for the book I am working on now came to me. The working title is The Maestro and revolves around a fake engagement.
