The Creative Team-TOGETHER!

Premik, Maryann, Andrew & Toby
 Princess K.I.M. team had a productive working-weekend in December. It was the first time our Composer/Arranger, Premik,  came from NYC to meet the crew. We got to bond and strengthen our commitment to the play as well has form relationships, not only as the creative team, but as true creative spirits. Our three days consisted of fine-tuning the play and devising a plan to go forward to prepare the music. Our evenings included lots of great planning meetings around the dinner table where we feasted on delicious food. (We like to eat!)

We took a "field trip" to the MacDowell Artists Colony in Peterborough, NH, where Premik plans to  apply, and a visit to the Peterborough Players, as we research places for our play's production. The highlight of our weekend was a "Private" jamming session with the very talented Premik and Andrew. WOW!  We plan to release our first song on itunes in March.  This will be a big year for us. Stay tuned.
Happy New Year Everyone!- Maryann
