Kim Moore is continuing to work on the musical production of “Cinderella”. She recently stopped by Tesco Productions to pick up the rehearsal and performance CDs so the orchestra, dancers, singers and other artists can begin work on their respective parts. The various directors and positions are being filled and the planned March performances are coming together. As stated in last month’s post the performances will be held at the KROC center in South Omaha. They promise to be well worth your attendance.
This past week in Le Mars, IA the Stangl Family and Rayne Magill were awarded “CD of the Year” awards at the National Traditional Country Music Association annual festival. The awards were presented by Director Bob Everhart and were chosen by the Rural Roots Music Commission. Each award represented a different music category. The Stangl Family received their award for “Telling His Story” as Vintage Gospel CD of the Year, and Rayne’s CD, “Thank You Lord” achieved Home Grown Gospel CD of the Year. Congratulations on being chosen for these honors and allowing Tesco Productions to be part of the process. These awards represent the 3rd and 4th “CD of the Year” awards that were recorded here, and it was a privilege to work with you all. I know you all desire to return true honor to God – who provides each of us with talents and skills as He designs.
This week there was more music recording with the Moore family – three generations of it in fact. What may look like a typo in the header isn’t actually as I once again heard from this music and drama family to make the first recordings for an upcoming production of Cinderella. Kim and her family have been to Tesco Productions several times over the years and I’ve kind of been able to watch her family grow up, and now there was a third generation in the studio. These particular recordings were the launch of the musical portion of the classic tale of Cinderella, with planned presentations at The Salvation Army KROC Center in the Bellevue area next spring. Of course there’s lots of planning and rehearsal for such a large event which will encompass far more participants than just their family, and Kim’s describing it as “rock climbing”. You start up the face, hang on to each foot and hand hold, don’t look back and keep heading to the summit – knowing your Heavenly Guide is holding the safety rope.
Kim brought her talents to the ivories, her daughter Olivia sang one of Cinderella’s songs as a teenager, and her daughter very magnificently rang out a vocal rendition of her own – reflecting a very young Cinderella. There’s a lot more music to come and we’ll keep you posted with pics and news over the next several weeks. Keep a date open for next March to catch one of the performances in what promises to be a delightful presentation of this timeless tale that has more to say than just what may be on the surface.
