Clint Connolly replied to Miles R.'s discussion Do you still make friends?
"Hey Elliot, Yeah, ditto on all you said here.  That part about not controlling discussions is very convicting for me.  Listening is a critical art and valuing the other person rather than making them a reflection of yourself. "

NO WAY!!!!!

How you doin', man?? I'm doing well. My man's mom passed away a couple years ago, and now he and I are living at his family's home up in the hills near Bethlehem, PA. I can practically hear the banjos.

Things have gotten pretty bad at the Philadelphia Orchestra. They're still investigating bankruptcy. So I have only 1 choral contract with the Philly Singers this season. So I took a job as section leader with the Bucks County Choral Society this season. Its not an AGMA gig, but there are 5 concerts per season, and money I can count on.

I had been working for Cunningham Piano Company from 2008-November 2011. I was brought on board to create their institutional business: churches, schools, colleges, theatres, etc. It was going really well until 2011 when the market went south. So we agreed that it just wasn't worth effort any more. I'l be collecting for a while I look for something local here in Bucks or Lehigh county.

I've been here at AoM for a few years, but haven't been very active until about a year ago. Interesting place. NFCS just died after classicalvoices opened up, and they're not even very active. Kinda sad.

Anyway, its great bumping into you here. Have a great New Year, and don't be a stranger.
