A Finer Things Break
The piano studio is about to begin its Christmas break, and I'm excited because this will be a working vacation for me.
I've defined the two week break as my "Finer Things Break," which is an idea steal from The Office's Finer Things Club, a club instituted for a select few individuals that still had souls in the corporate environment.
However, instead of using my break to discuss art like the picture above reveals, I plan to use my time to finally notate my Aeneas compositions into a computer program.
You may ask, what in the world is an Aeneas composition, and this is where I have to decide whether or not to share the short or long version of this story, as I am afraid you may find me really, truly, very nerdy.
Let's keep this short. :)
In college, I double-majored in piano performance and Latin. To combine both of my majors for a final project, I took 3 separate texts from Vergil's "Aeneid," translated said sections, and put the words to music from the original Latin. I ended up performing a song cycle using Dido's 3 major monologues with my dear friend Hannah as Dido. From there, we were forever known in college as the "Dido Divas."
