Oh Freedom! Hits The Stage, 3 Days And Counting!

Things are moving forward very rapidly on the the fully staged, theatrical version of my show Oh Freedom! .  The performance is being produced by the Bureau of Cultural Affairs at Western Illinois University in Macomb, IL  and will take place on April the 11th, 2018 at the Hainline Theater on the WIU campus in Macomb, IL at 7:30 PM  You can purchase tickets through this link:   BCAbringstheSTARS.com
I’ve spent the last 2 weeks rehearsing with the choir (they sound magnificent!) and working with Choir Director Dr. James Stewgall.     Dr. Stegall is a rare talent and a pleasure to work with.  He has taken this vision I have had in my mind for years and made it come to life with the Western Illinois University Singers.  We’ve got our set designed and are working out the lighting and tech schemes even as I write this.  Today I had the first rehearsal with 3/4 of the band (Bassist Ben Willis will be flying in from New YorkCity to perform the show) and I have to say, it’s going to sound great!  Rocky Maffit on percussion, Eric Lambert on  guitar and Ben Willis on bass; all world class players!
Here’s a short clip of Dr Stegall and the choir at our last rehearsal running the beginning of the opening number.
