Hello Everyone!

WE MADE IT!!!! 2020 is now in the past. As disappointing as it was, in so many ways, I learned a lot of new things that helped me learn about myself as a musician, teacher and singer. You have to look for the good in the bad, and I found a lot of good.

2021, began with me performing on a concert series, called the Rug Shop Concert Series, with Charlie Barnett. As always, it was a fun performance, especially because it was in an actual rug shop surrounded by beautiful rugs from all over the world.  I also got to record three songs at St. Mary's  Episcopal Church on George Washington's campus for GWU's 200 Bicentennial.  I was honored to be asked. I performed for the GW's Law School's Fall Recognition ceremonies, and they were so inspiring.  That's two professional recordings I made during the pandemic!

Once again, I had the pleasure of working with Dana Tai Soon Burgess and his dance company for his Struggle for Justice exhibit for the National Portrait Gallery. Along with adjudicating, being on panels, and teaching, I would say 2021 has kept me pretty busy so far.

As Music Director at UUMC,  we kept the music going each week with the dedication of the fabulous Aldersgate Choir, and some guest artists. We have had some services outside on the lawn, which was wonderful, but we are ready to go back into the sanctuary on July 4th. What a day that will be.

I look forward to what else is coming my way. Hopefully concerts that were cancelled will be rescheduled.  I can't wait to be back on GW campus, in my studio, and getting back on stage. We've really been given the chance for a restart, after a much needed " rest". Let's make the most of it. I hope and pray that I will see you soon.

Blessings,

Millicent Scarlett
