Today’s #WeeklyWednesday is a Renaissance piece composed by John Dowland (lyrics anonymous), published in his 1597 First Booke of Songes or Ayres.
My performance comes from the musical pre-show I designed for Coronado Playhouse’s production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. I won awards from both the Coronado Playhouse and San Diego ACT (Aubrey Awards) for my work on and in the show – for sound design, musical direction, and acting (as Ursula/Balthasar)! It was a wonderful challenge that has inspired a lot of very enjoyable work!
That production was also just incredibly fun to be involved in, particularly because of the dear friends I made from my “By’r Lady” castmates: Margaret, Hero, and Beatrice 😉
Thanks to John Pauter for the archival footage! I hope you enjoy my rendition of this piece, and thank you, as always, for watching!
