Last night, one of the Oakland students, Quincy Stewart, and I performed for our friends and colleagues at the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance annual awards dinner. The MaTilDas, named after OU’s founding patron, Matilda Dodge, is designed to honor outstanding students, and also provide a venue to showcase what MTD can produce. It is attended by family, friends, co-workers, donors, spouses, boyfriends, girlfriends, alumni, students, performers, and administrators. A lovely affair, if I do say so myself.
Quincy, a dedicated, loyal, and creative person, will be a great teacher and community leader. Last night we played “There Will Never Be Another You” by Harry Warren, and it was well-received.
