Hello, all,

Some are asking or wondering ...: so I'll write a little note in public.

There is not much time left for me to answer questions, because I am creating a musical.

It was ordered by a city near Brussels and will be performed several times in spring 2012. My job is: composing the music, leading the musical rehearsals and conducting the performances.

It is a joy to play with Excel, but letting flow the musical inspiration is giving me a fantastic feeling.

warm regards,
Erik

thanks for your kind words, Peter, Jon and Jaafar

Basic ideas of 11 songs are ready, faster than I would have thought. About 5 to go. After that some variations to be made. Really enjoying it. I cried and laughed a lot, depending of the contents, when singing those songs.

Later I will forget all of it for about 2 weeks to refresh my mind and start everything over where needed. About December a first message for casting candidates will be launched.

About then I will start to make the orchestration. Cannot tell you what a dream this is! A lot of composers over here must be hoping to get such an order and out of nowhere this opportunity came to me. Unbelievable but so
Code:
var1 = 2
var2 = 2
MsgBox var1 = var2, vbExclamation, "WOW"
:)

First public anouncement.
http://www.nieuwsblad.be/article/detail.aspx?articleid=N530S273

This is what I am allowed to share and what you can find in the article.
Nalingi Yo
Sabena, the musical

About a family working at the belgian air company, Sabena (1923-2001).
A story with hilaric and sad moments.
Dramatic but ending hopefully.

Casting will be in March-April 2011

For me the music (in progress) is beautiful, but you may have your own opinion :)

warm regards,
Erik
