Letter from Emily

Hello Everyone!
Well, I think I am long overdue for a bit of a catch-up on the life of Emily e-mail.
Life in Chicago is great.  The city fits me like a glove.  I have three jobs which include front-of-house staff at The Goodman Theatre, teaching an afterschool math and english program in the Projects, and finally selling books at the largest Borders in the US across from Oprah’s home!  If I am not at work, I am probably on a bus or on the el going to one of these jobs!

Superstar - The Making Of…


Each year ISN hosts a (historicaly well attended) reception on the first Friday in January which falls on the 7th or later. This year Jan 7 is a Friday so the reception will be that day.

In past years this reception has been characterized by the confluence of unlikely people—I say that meaning largish groups who rarely get to see each other have a common connection to ISN. In the past the Premier, MLAs, senior government officials, the unemployed, stock-car racing teams, oodles of members of the I.T. community, and a host of social organizations and NGOs have come out. It always surprises me and gives me hope for the coming year. Truly ISNs annual reception has far more to do with who comes than who’s hosting (in fact many never know what’s going on, they simply come with friends).

TheatrePEIs Voice Workshop: Bringing Songs to Life - Storytelling in Musical Theatre

At the centre of every song is a beating heart: a character, a mood, a desire, a story. As singers, we must move beyond the sound of our voices, our tensions, our anxieties, our egos to illuminate the truth in the lyrics and have fun!

This is a course for singers - beginner to advanced who wish to gain confidence, improve vocal technique and explore musical text in a deeper and more meaningful way.
