The Journey’s End Brings New Beginnings

?Well, it?s over.? This was my initial thought in the middle of the night as I quickly drifted off into sleep after returning home from our southeastern concert?tour. All of the behind-the scenes organizing, months of practice, and the eager anticipation were in the past. The climax of the choral year has so abruptly changed […]

Post-Concert Jitters and Choir Pics

Everyone has heard of pre-concert jitters, but what about post-concert jitters? The excitement and challenge of singing in front of a new audience and waiting for?their reactions is always something that has given me the jitters. This pre-concert excitement not only translates to the start of the concert when the stage is hot and the […]

Music is a Sanctuary

Greetings, my fellow choir enthusiasts! Music is a sanctuary. It?s a place of hope, healing, rejuvenation, protection, solitude, and so much more.
