A quick (musical) note

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Not much time to blog, but I wanted to let my lovely Spark friends know that I got through the concert on Friday unscathed! Thanks for all the supportive words while I fretted and was nervous!

In fact it was great fun and those who came to listen to us (2-300 colleagues) told us that they found their Christmas spirit.

My solo number went all right (although I did better at the rehearsal) I'd love to do it again (and do even better).

The whole choir had a great time singing together. It's just a wonderful bunch of people and no matter how stressed or tired I am before we meet, I always leave our choir practice invigorated!

If it turns out well, I'll share a video recorded by one of the members of our choir. Meanwhile, here's a picture of us during our concert. (I'm on the far right.)

    Awesome!~ I love it when an experience leaves you begging for more! I've sometimes felt proud after performances, sometimes not so good, so I am glad to hear you felt good. (And it never goes as well as in rehearsal, does it? - that's the nature, but mostly people in the audience won't know)

    Oh that's wonderful! I'm glad it was a good experience, it sounds like it was a lovely concert.

I used to work for a Swedish-based company and every year a bunch of us would put on a short concert for St. Lucia's Day (which is December 13th if I recall correctly). It was such a fun experience for the singers and a nice break from the work routine for our coworkers.

I'm so glad you get to spread the spirit at your workplace like that. Congratulation on your solo too!

    Congrats. And what a nice gift to your colleagues...the holiday spirit. An antidote to the commercialism of the season. Brava.
