Well, Fall is not officially here yet, but the darker mornings, cooler nights, and students on campus are showing me how close it is. In the natural world Fall represents the end of the summer, harvest, the end of the growing season. But culturally, it is also tied to beginnings as children begin a new school year.
That back to school feeling of potential and possibility is in my bones. I begin to look ahead. Our chorus season follows the school year and I’m looking forward to the possibilities ahead for us.
For the first time ever, I’m not recruiting new singers. This is a little sad for me, since I love to meet and get to know the women who come to sing. But we are a full house now and our current group of singers is really fab. If you’ve been contemplating joining Sing! and haven’t yet done it, unfortunately you’ll need to wait a while longer as we see what develops for the chorus.
Last year was a very outward focused time for the chorus. We did a ton of performing in a wide variety of locations and got to meet some really great audiences. I anticipate that this year will be more inward focused. I’m preparing new music and hope we can hone our skills. Beginning a new era of Sing!
