December is always a very busy month. Here comes A Child's Christmas in Wales with Donald Hicken reading, and singing holiday favorites with Becky Mossing and some of our theatre department students, to be presented at Germano's Cabaret on Decembe 18. It is becoming quite the tradition at Germano's (in Little Italy), which benefits the School for the Arts. I have many singing engagements planned as well. Check out my upcoming events page to see where I'm going to be this month.
October marked the first anniversary of my beloved Pete's death. It was something to 'get through'--this year of 'firsts'. But now it is accomplished, and Pete would want me to move forward--so that I shall. But he is always in my heart and in my memory. How lucky I was to have such a loving, giving, protecting husband for 30 years.
Now as I continue to 'celebrate' the many special occasions throughout the year, I still think of him and what we used to do for those occasions. Thanksgiving has come and gone--and I do have much to be thankful for--most especially the many years I had with him.
My father Alcuin H. Krebs passed away on November 18--after a long bout with Alzheimer's. He was ready to go, but waited until my mother appeared at his side to tell him that she loved him as she held his hand. An hour later...he left us. Christmas will never be the same without him. He loved this holiday more than anything. He was such a big 'kid'. He loved choosing the tree, and decorated it every year with our help--or without. He loved everything having to do with this time of year. I hope that I can honor his memory by holding it close to my heart as well.
Good night and God bless you, Dad....

I just love this picture of Deb Kinghorn, Arthur Lessac and me at one of our conferences not too long ago. He had to have been 100 at the time. Doesn't he look great--actually, I think we all look great!

Again, in light of the economy these days, I would like to try an experiment.
In the past, most churches and such venues expected to pay a set price for a concert of my music. I have always tried to make all my concerts affordable, but even so, sometimes it's just not in the budget anymore to bring in someone or some event that might enhance the life of the faith community. Well, how about sharing a concert for a 'free-will' offering by those attending? In this way, the church itself would not be bearing any burden for bringing something potentially exciting, rewarding and spiritually uplifting to parishioners. If this is something your church or faith community would entertain, just email me, or call me we'll discuss the possibility. My main goal has always been to share the music that God has given me to write, perform and record. That's the bottom line. So...what are we waiting for?
