Here's a happy headline:
You can click on that and read the CBC article about a choir meeting again in a town on Prince Edward Island. It's good to know we're not alone. The pandemic has been so hard on us singers! Many of us still feel uncertain about getting back together, but so many of us are ready now, done with isolating and distancing and all of that.
We're back, and those of us who were there on our first Tuesday this season felt wonderful singing and laughing and chatting together again.
And, we sounded great too!
We started with a brief warm-up. After stretching our bodies and voices a bit, part of our warm-up was to hum the tune of God Save the Queen/God Save the King. For me, it's still Queen Elizabeth's song, so experiencing it without words was a way to honour her. Humming is a very healthy activity, good for your body and soul, so there's that too.
Here's what we sang:
- Wonderful World
- This Little Light of Mine (Lauren, Melinda solos)
- Blue Skies (Lauren, Debbie solos)
- I can see clearly now
- Somewhere out there (no solo)
- You’ll never walk alone
- Why we sing (no solos)
- Hallelujah (no solos)
Here's the plan for Tuesday, September 20th. Think about what solos you might want to try!
Blue Skies (solos)
Somewhere out there (solo)
This Little Light of Mine (solos)
Why we sing (solos)
You’ll never walk alone
Let's talk about the Choir, Choir, Choir! Sing-along concert in November, and maybe some movie nights? (An American Tale, Greatest Showman, Mamma Mia,...?)
