Speaking of Singing...

July 31, 2019

July 3, 2019, Rhodes, Greece — Pat, our unofficial official Yale Alumni Chorus International Concert Tour photographer, just sent me this candid she took during the obligatory Cabaret Night that ends every Yale tour.  I was singing either my Florence Foster Jenkins rendition of Toselli’s ‘Serenade’dutifully off-key — or my own on-key rendition of Rodgers and Hart’s ‘To Keep My Love Alive,’ from the 1943 revival of A Connecticut Yankee.

 

 

I've been married, and married, and often I’ve sighed,

‘I’m never the bridesmaid, I’m always the bride.’

I never divorced them — I hadn’t the heart.

Just remember those sweet words: ’Till death do us part.’

 

I married many men... a ton of them... 

And I was untrue to none of them, 

Because I bumped off every one of them — 

To keep my love alive.


Followed by a laundry list of all her husbands and how she dispatched them. Macabre? Hey, I’ve been reading murder mysteries since I was a kid. In fact I wrote one when I was 9. #
