Meet McDoc, my biggest fan and supporter!
We were married in June, 2007. Here we are singing “People Will Say We’re in Love” at our wedding reception:
Mr. Miss Music Nerd lives vicariously through MMN. He grew up in a house where music was on most times and singing along, for better of for worse, was the norm. He played trombone and sang in junior high, and sang again in high school. Now he charms his way into community choruses and tries very hard to not to get asked to leave. His goal is to sing in performance all the big requiems, i.e., Mozart, Berlioz, Brahms, Verdi, Fauré, Duruflé. Two down, four to go. Oh, and style points for historically significant venues, you know, like singing Gabrieli in San Marco di Venezia (on the list as well). Is it too much to ask to sing Verdi’s Requiem in La Scala? McDoc also wheedles his way into poetry workshops trying not to draw too much attention and jot down some blank verse from time to time.
He was too modest to tell you that a couple of his poems were published in The Inner World of Medical Students: Listening to Their Voices in Poetry by Johanna Shapiro. He is also a polyglot, a polymath, and in my unbiased opinion, a hunk! 😉
