JenSop: The Singing Traveler!

Idealist. Dreamer. Singer. Explorer.

Here We Come a Wassailing….

And now we are another week into caroling season! Things are going well and we’re super busy. I have four gigs booked for today. (I only sing one of those, but it’s a long one.) So there are two caroling groups out, a brass group, and Santa.

I have to say that I am just stunned at the amount of inquiries we’re still getting. Unfortunately, at this point, most of those are for next weekend, and we’re booked up completely. I just don’t have the singers! So next year is going to involve a massive expansion of Olde Towne Carolers. I’m going to have to work on the organizational expansion of the business as soon as I get back from my Europe trip in April. I think this will also mean a more regimented approach to how I run the business in general – rehearsals, protocol, costume assignments, etc. I’m even thinking of hiring an assistant/intern type person to help me out, as I’m getting to the point where all the work is a bit overwhelming.

No complaints, though. An expanding business is a good thing! And I feel like I’ve made great strides in how I’ve been handling my stress! (Knock on wood!)

So if you want to hear some fun festive caroling today – come to Hotel Bethlehem between 4:30-7:30pm and hear us singing! Hope to see you there!

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?
