Remember the horror that was Flashdance, and Jennifer Beale’s little monologue about going to classical concerts? She says something like, “And then Daddy, who somehow never turns up in this story even though I’m supposed to be just old enough to get a second set of teeth, said, ‘If you close your eyes you can see the music.'” Horribly, this is the elegant truth for a lot of people, including me. I close my eyes and see shapes and forms and dancers and think of Martha Graham in those odd jersey tubes that made it to off the rack in the eighties. Sometimes I knit, draw pictures or shoot spitballs at irate teens because I’m so mature. When my brother, sisters, respective spouses and kids pack a pew and lightning fails to strike we have an excellent time. Once all of us did the wave. For us, choir concerts are serious business and wild fun.
Join us and see the music yourself.
