Merry Christmas to you and Doug! I walked on and off stage without taking an arm. I kind of hugged the Christmas tree, as I was 
nervous about heading too far right, as I would have had a nice three foot drop off the stage, but, other than walking right against 
the tree, I got on and off stage with my cane. During both rehearsals, I had taken an arm. The first rehearsal had a keyboard, the 
Christmas tree, several instruments, and a path that was only about two feet wide. I took an arm as I was advised to because I did 
not want to make a mistake and fall off the stage.
    My solo went very well. I got to sing. And Suddenly, there was was with the angel, a multitude of the Heavenly Host, praising 
God and Saying, "Glory to God. Glory to God in the Highest!" I also got to sing two other lines with the other singers. Some people 
came up to me and said they wished I had gotten to sing more. It was fun, and I actually got paid $75! It is nice to get paid for 
what you have studied for so long, even after trying for ten years!
    I told the conductor afterward that I appreciated his giving me a chance. He had come up to me and tole me I was wonderful. I 
told him that I had tried auditioning for young artist apprenticeships after college, but that I was not allowed to participate. The 
directors did not know how I would learn my music or make my way around stage. He said I deserved a shot. I thought that was 
awesome! We even talked a little about the text of the work we had just performed being our Gospel lesson in church that morning. It 
is awesome to sing the things I believe in beautiful guise!!
