JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

I now have a YouTube Channel!

We finally ordered our new video recorder about 3 weeks ago. Decided to go with the ZoomQ3HD because it is specifically made for musicians. We had $100 worth of Amazon gift cards, so we ordered from Amazon. Unfortunately, the distributor made an error and long story short, we didn’t get the recorder until the day before my recital last week. But we still got it to work and I was able to tape the entire program. (Thanks to the wife of the tenor who was also singing – she did a great job of taping us!)

I played around in iMovie quite a bit and figured out how to get the clips onto YouTube, and even made a photo slideshow to go along with one of the tracks from my Christmas album! Then yesterday, I had my mom record some of HMS Pinafore. Seems that she zoomed in a little too much in some of the shots, so that the picture quality isn’t the greatest, but I was able to get one aria up from yesterday on the YouTube channel.

Now that I’m getting more knowledgeable about all of this video stuff, it’s making me excited for the videos we’ll be taking in Disney – which is just around the corner! I have to get my final organizational stuff together so we know exactly which segments to tape in which parks. I foresee the editing process to be a long one, as I’ll have TONS of stuff to splice together. But I’m excited for a new challenge and can’t wait to get Destination Mouse online and out there for all to see!

Back to the singing – if you want to visit my YouTube channel, my YouTube name is JenniferGrafSoprano. (Not sure how to link it. Here’s a try, but it’s from the user end of my page):

One of my favorite quotes is, "If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough." I guess I've been a dreamer all my life - I set my sights high and then I try to reach the sky. Some might call me a naive idealist, but that's just the way I am. I believe in always taking the high road, I believe in true love, and I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. If you put good out into the world, good will come back to you! Being the dreamer that I am, I pursued singing as my primary life's calling - I've got two degrees in classical voice under my belt, and I sing just about anything under the sun. I also love a good adventure. Over the past few years, I've done quite a bit of world traveling, and have even lived abroad for stretches at a time: mostly in Vienna (Austria) and Croatia. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and I became a travel agent who specializes in Disney vacations. (Seriously, I KNOW Disney - I've been going regularly since I was a little girl - and I LOVE it!) And with all my experience traveling and living in Europe, I'm becoming quite the specialist in that travel category as well. (And last year, I started working as a Tour Director in Central Europe!) As to the other juicy details of my life - I'm originally from Pennsylvania, I'm married to an awesome Croatian man named Miloš who is the BEST adventure partner a girl could ask for. (He's also an expert on knowing how to make me smile.) He's truly the love of my life! I've also had all kinds of other jobs along the way, besides singer and travel pro. (Which is pretty standard for those of us who went to school for music.) I've worked part time weekends as a Disney Princess look-alike for children's parties. I've been teaching for almost 20 years, and have lots of experience in retail and customer service. Oh, and I should also probably mention that I'm a huge Lord of the Rings/Star Trek nerd! :-) Let's all go along for an adventure, shall we?
