[How are you today? |disappointeddisappointed]

Well, the Sacred Harp sing is cancelled due to the IMPENDING snow storm. *sobble* I really wanted to go....*sigh*

Actually, there's one in New Haven this coming Thursday from 7:30 to 9. It's at...St. PJs. That's what Neely Bruce said in the e-mail...the Church of St. Paul and St. James....niiiiiice.

Anyway. I won't be able to go, but y'all might like to. *sigh*

Sharon

By the by, if your name is Sara or Linda, please comment on this so I know you saw it. Don't want you traipsing all the way to Middletown to a cancelled event...

[How are you today? |excitedexcited]

In case y'all are interested, there will be a Sacred Harp sing this Sunday from 2:30-5 p.m. at Memorial Chapel, Wesleyan University, Middletown.

It's free, and books are available.

It's led by Neely Bruce, btw. Rawther kewl composer, I understand.

I'm almost DEF. going, and I thought certain choir geeks might be interested. Hehe, it would be hilarious times if a bunch of us showed up.... ;)

Hi guys!

I was wondering... would it be at all possible for somebody to photocopy or lend me a copy of "Only You" or something similar (a capella) that you have in your folders? I'm in an a 4-person capella group at school and we wanted to do something fun and pretty for the spring concert. We'd like to start now, because we had a serious crunch time before the winter concert and it ended up notsogreat. So if you have anything fun or that you like (or have access to the music library and would be willing to let me borrow some), that'd be great. Thanks!

section leader? no.

lead chorister? no.

What part do you sing/have sung in past years? My first 2 years, I sang 2nd Soprano (but we don't talk about that. mmkay? ;D). Then I got switched to 1st Alto and my life began.

What's your favorite song we've done this year thus far? I loved Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day. And when Senior sang Time in a Bottle at that first concert in Edgerton Park. =)

What's your favorite choir song EVER? Hmm. Maybe A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square. Or In Remembrance. I tend to love a lot of the slow, pretty, melodic ones. And all the a capella stuff. And all the Bulgarian, Village Harmony-ish ones.

What's your favorite non-choir song? Oh man. Anything Broadway. Or Simon and Garfunkel stuff... Or.. um. I don't know. haha.

What's your favorite thing about choir? The amazing friends I made, the exposure to so many great choral pieces, the level of professionalism, being able to sing with so many talented people on a weekly basis, perfect unisons, having somewhere where I could be myself and know that everyone was also being themselves... the list goes on and on.
