With this vision of spring and summer comes a time when we are preparing ourselves for that final concert of the season. We can't wait to WOW the audiences with the wonderful musical things we have been working on for several months. But there is also a sense of melancholy that starts to cover us, like that cloud in the sky that comes over the sun and causes the air to become chilled. We won't be seeing our musical friends for four months. We won't be singing our hearts out on a weekly basis. We won't be creating beautiful sounds with others in our community. Something is going to be missing from our lives.
It does come as a shock to many of us when we are wondering what to do with our evenings now that we have no rehearsals. For some, we are ready for a respite so we can rejuvenate ourselves and be ready for that next season. For others, we are lost without that weekly meeting. Don't worry. You can still sing throughout the summer months. You can still meet up with your musical friends for fun and singing. And...September will be here before you know it and all will be right again in the choir universe.
Your voice is a special instrument that was given to you at birth. It is a part of you and can be used for so many wonderful things to benefit yourself and others in your community. Raising your voices together in song creates a bond in which there is no comparison. Please consider how you can fit into your community with your gift of singing.
Many concerts are coming up here in our community. Consider how you can benefit from attending, singing, participating as a volunteer, or donating to one of your local community choirs. Visit our homepage to see what concerts await you from Bellingham Music Enrichment Project.
