Yes, usually I write about hosting parties and greeting cards, but today I want to share with you something that I’ve been doing that I’m trying really hard to make part of my life – doing what I want to do. Not in the “my way or the highway” sense, but more in the “not following the crowd” sense. In the past month, there have been 4 events that I’ve wanted to go to that I spoke out about and I was able to make them all happen. It didn’t matter if other people were interested (though it was nice in some cases that they were), I was prepared to go alone because it was what I wanted to do, and there wasn’t a point in sitting around and waiting. Let me share these four experiences with you.
1. Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus Concert, a cabaret night
What an epic concert. They were dressed a little… more… raunchy? Than that. The music was great. The personalities were INCREIDBLE and it was just a joy to be in the audience. I can’t wait to be a more regular audience member for these guys.
2. Varsity Vocals ICCA Quarter Finals, an a cappella competition
8 to the Bar, Drexel’s all-male a cappella group – who made it to the semi finals!!
Check out their website to listen to them: http:www//8ttb.net.

The TrebleMakers also performed at the ICCAs – I was majorly impressed with their choreography at the same time as singing skills. Check out their website for music as well: http://www.drexeltreblemakers.com/

3. Cirque de Soleil, Quidam
One of the best Cirque de Soleil shows that I’ve seen to date. The music was awesome – and the acts were incredible.
4. Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Beethoven’s Last Night
The TSO concert was absolutely incredible. I’d never heard the Beethoven’s Last Night album, so the story was entirely new to me (which was awesome), and they’re SO talented.
I also decided that I want to hear the vocalists play singing tag with the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack. To the point where I tweeted them. I was hoping they would have responded.
