Here's the text of the ad: The Brockton Symphony Orchestra will kick off its 68th Season by “Celebrating America” on Sunday, October 18th at 3 PM at the Buckley Performing Arts Center, From the lyricism of “Jubilee” in Chadwick’s Symphonic Sketches and Anderson’s “First Day of Spring” to the passion of Herbert’s Cello Concerto, featuring principal cellist Kevin Crudder; from the dramatic sweep of Dvorak’s American Suite and the proud patriotism of Sousa’s El Capitan March, to the thrills of West Side Story, this concert will rouse your spirits. Adult tickets are Twenty dollars, seniors and students with ID, fifteen, 18 and under free. Order at Brockton Symphony dot org, or call the Symphony at 508-588-3841.

Caffeine: a book I am eminently qualified to narrate!

Here's my note to the author, sent with the audition below:
Hello Caterina. Here is my audition for Caffeine, which holds a special interest for me.
It is the only psychoactive drug I have used in 30 years, and is the one I started at the youngest age – about 14.
It is also considered potentially harmful for audiobook narrators, since its diuretic effect reduces needed moisture in the vocal cords and increases distracting mouth noises such as “clicks.”
I hope you will be interested in discussing the possibility that I can be “the voice of Caffeine!” (Pun intended.) Thank you for reading this and considering me.
