How could I forget?
How could I seriously forget how beautiful it is to sing in a choir?
Last night was the first time I’ve sang in a choir for many, many years. I remember how much I loved it. Last night I joined my community’s community choir. It was wonderful.
I must say, I’m a bit rusty and it’s taking me a bit to get my feet wet again, but after about an hour of rehearsal I was catching on. The phrase “if you don’t use it you lose it,” really rung true last night. But, I’m not sure you ever truly lose it altogether. Last night it all came flooding back after that first hour.
At one point I just really tuned in. And it was beautiful. The sound of the harmonies and the voices reflecting off of each other rang in the room. There was a lot of talent in that room. It was absolutely amazing. There just aren’t words to describe the sound unless you’ve sat in a choir and sang in one. It’s such a moving experience. I still am amazed that I could forget that beauty.
I’m excited about 2008. This is just one more thing I’m doing to make it a great year. I’m doing something I love. I’m waking up. And it feels great.
For those who know me, the first concert is April 24. If you need more details, send me an email.
