The Mom Cycle - Occupation Housewife, The Cookie Exchange, Ode To Agie - was performed at NIU as part of the Women’s Month celebration. The composer had two men singing 2nd Alto parts, one dressed as a lady of the evening and the other in a house dress. The audience was rolling on the floor with laughter, from content mostly, but also every time the men sang. For Ode To Agie, the group wore choir robes, the piece sounded like a hymn, but it is actually about boogers. The composer says she “almost” crossed the line with this one.
