Another Milestone- 800,000 Hits

It passed and I hadn’t even noticed (well til just now).

When I first started the blog I was elated to have 100 hits in a single day.

We’ve come a long way since then.  The next milestone that will  have a big impact in my mind is 1,000,000.

Unbelievable.  We must be doing something right.


Cape Ann Symphony Holiday Pops Concert Nov 28-29th

Holiday Pops Concert Just a Few Days Away!

Right after Thanksgiving, treat yourself to a musical night out November 28 at 8:00PM to hear the Cape Ann Symphony Holiday Pops concert. Or if you prefer, come November 29 to the Sunday matinee at 2:00 PM.

Symphony Singers Return

The concert will once again feature the 50-voice Cape Ann Symphony Singers. As an added bonus, one of its youngest members, soprano Gillian Hurst, will be singing Rejoice Greatly, a beautiful solo from Handel’s Messiah. She is a performer not to be missed!

About our young soloist

Gillian, a senior at Rockport High, recently performed as a soloist at the Koussevitzky Shed and Ozawa Hall while a student at Boston University’s Tanglewood Institute last summer. She had the lead role of Cenerentola in BUTI’s presentation of opera scenes from Rossini’s La Cenerentola. Gillian has just been accepted into the American Choral Directors Association’s Women’s Honors Choir to perform in Philadelphia at the ACDA Eastern Conference in February, 2010.

During her high school years, Gillian has had the honor of being accepted and performing with the MA North East District’s Honors Choirs and Symphony Hall Scholars All-State Honors choirs, performing solos at both.

Gillian will attend college next year to pursue her career as a classical singer. She is currently applying to a number of schools.

Mr Wonderful- GMG’s David Cox

We are lucky to have David taking pictures for us.  Y’all have no idea what he goes through to get the pictures you see that he takes to me.

Not computer savvy, David will spend hours at Walgreens editing his photos before he gets disc upon disc made so we can upload them and share with the GMG community.

So next time you see Mr Wonderful give him a pat on the back and thank him for sharing.

Here’s David all dressed up for the Banana Glam O Rama event at City Hall.  He cleans up pretty good wouldn’t you say?

Yes ladies he is available.  I’m thinking about pimping him out to  a select clientele of Cape Ann women.  Just leave a note and I’ll make all the proper arrangements to have our boy show you a good time.  😉
