Great weekend- Friday Chamber Choir and Drama Department did an outstanding job with the Broadway Themed 2 hour show at the Chelsea Center. Saturday night the wonderful chorus booster officers treated me to a night at the Van Wezel with the Sarasota Orchestra's Broadway Bound concert with Vocalists Christine Noll of Broadway's Jekyll and Hyde/Ragtime, Susan Egan who was Tony nominated as the original Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Gary Mauer who starred in the Broadway productions of Phantom playing the Phantom and Enjolras in Les Miserables. A former student was in Gloria Musicae chorus along with several friends I used to sing with in Florida Voice. Today I saw Carousel at the Players Theatre of Sarasota with a former student in the cast. Sarasota is a great place for the Art's which are alive and well. Plus I won the 50/50 again.
3-, 5-, or 7-Night Stay at Siesta Key Bungalows in Siesta Key, FL: Secluded Bungalows with Views of Lagoon and Tropical Palms A barrier island west of Sarasota, Florida, Siesta Key is sandwiched between Little Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Siesta Key Bungalows sit along the banks of Heron Lagoon, a narrow waterway in the middle of the mangrove-lined island. It's a secluded spot where you can kayak through the water or fish from a private dock for snook and redfish. Tucked away as it is, the property is still just a short drive from the popular Siesta Beach, and it’s within 1 mile of Turtle Beach, a good spot for collecting seashells. Hibiscus bushes and 30 kinds of palms surround Siesta Key Bungalows’ pool-deck area, shading it from the bright Florida sunshine. Feel free to borrow pool gear free of charge. You can borrow bicycles and kayaks, also at no charge, to explore the nearby coast. Brick paths lead to the property’s 10 bungalows. Each has a unique layout, though all feature palm-themed ...
