Carrie & Juan got married…

Juan & Carrie coming down the aisle....

Juan & Car­rie com­ing down the aisle.…

You know the song:

Give your­self to love, if love is what you’re after
Open up your hearts to the tears & laughter.…
Give your­self to love…give your­self to love.

That’s what hap­pened when Juan (you know him from the front desk at the Med­ical Cen­ter) and Car­rie (she man­ages the tele-psy­chi­a­try project there) got mar­ried on Valen­tine’s Day — a few tears, a lot of smiles, and a beau­ti­ful day, cap­tured in this slide show by Rain­shad­ow Arts’ Mark Gardner:

You’ve heard her here.…now Corinne Stevens is head­ing for Ten­nessee to con­tin­ue her vocal edu­ca­tion. Here’s more, from her note:

I’ll be attend­ing the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ten­nessee Knoxville’s grad­u­ate appren­tice­ship pro­gram with Knoxville Opera.  I’m very excit­ed to have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to per­form in both UT Knoxville’s Opera The­ater pro­duc­tions as well as Knoxville Oper­a’s young artist pro­gram, all while earn­ing my mas­ter’s degree!

I’m sad­dened to leave the Pacif­ic North­west, which I’ve come to call home over the past few years.  It was the first place where I could tru­ly explore the art of opera on a region­al and pro­fes­sion­al lev­el, and I will miss the col­leagues and friends I made there.  But over and above the melan­choly of leav­ing my home­base is an excite­ment for the new chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties that I’m con­fi­dent Knoxville will offer.  From Skid­more Col­lege to Vien­na to Ari­zona to Wash­ing­ton to France and now to Knoxville, I feel that this next step will bring me that much clos­er to accom­plish­ing my dreams.

More stable than the ones in New York.…

When I vis­it­ed with Bob Cole­man from Islanders Bank the oth­er day, I asked him if they were more sta­ble than the folks around the coun­try who have been hav­ing so much trou­ble. He offered me this rather reas­sur­ing assess­ment which address­es banks in the state…check it out.

Nice turnout for John’s opening.…
