Singing with the Prairie Chamber Choir

This year I’ve joined the Prairie Chamber Choir, directed by Melissa Morgan. I’ve missed singing with a high-quality choir, and this one definitely is that. We’re working toward our Christmas concert on December 18, but we did have a mini-concert recently, singing three songs by Winnipeg composer Sid Robinovitch in the Classical Showcase of Break Out …

Merry Christmas: me singing “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

Here’s a holiday treat (at least, I hope it’s a treat): me singing “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” at Christmas Crackers 2015, the annual holiday revue of The Golden Apple Theatre here in Regina. It was a great evening all the way around, and this was my small contribution to it. Enjoy, and Merry …

‘Twas the Nocturnal Time of the Preceding Day…video edition

A “science column” I wrote several years ago, my science-writer’s take on the famous poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” has had remarkable life. It appeared in the newspaper, of course, but it was originally written for for CBC Saskatchewan’s Afternoon Edition radio program, and first read at one of their Christmas open houses (a different …

Seeing through someone else’s eyes

[podcast]https://edwardwillett.com/wp-content/uploads//2011/09/Recreating-Brain-Video.mp3[/podcast] Whenever I say anything is impossible, I always think of Arthur C. Clarke’s First Law: “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.” Up until recently, I would have said mind-reading was impossible…but, even …

Me, singing “Me”

While setting up my video last week for the virtual classroom visits-by-authors I was part of, I had the urge to give my microphone a good test by singing. So I recorded one of my party pieces, “Me” from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The result pleased me enough I decided to YouTube it…and here …
