And we're off!

Hi all - completely wild and crazy day today, but a good one!

I spent all day at the Vogue theatre, doing a tech rehearsal for the rather complicated opening ceremonies. 10 harps, an erhu, and a percussion extravaganza, a zillion lighting and sound cues, and the slideshow and narration that has been keeping me up at nights.  But it went very well indeed!!

Two of Elizabeth's students played -and very well- as did Alys Howe, Sharlene Wallace and all the imported talent, inlcuding Bronn Journey who performed as Jack Senior, a harpist from Fort George who in the 1910's played harp for dances and skating parties on the frozen Fraser River.

Too many highlights - I could go on and on, but it is very late and I need to be at the harp pen at 7:30 am. More tomorrow - MR
