Last night I did something spontaneous!
Every summer, the lovely ladies of Spirit of Harmony come over to the theatre and serenade us. They are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, basically a group of acapella singers in choruses or barbershop quartets made up of women only. The following is a video of them performing in competition (where they won either second or third place, I’m not sure)
Every time I watch them perform I say, “I want to do this, this looks like so much fun.” Last night I said it out loud, to one of the members of the chorus. She said, “Come to rehearsal with me!”
I said yes.
I had a blast. It was so fun to sing just for the sake of singing, and be part of a group making beautiful music together. I wasn’t trying to prove myself, or worrying about what people might think, I was just singing.
Life is much better if you just let go and sing once in a while.
Anyone want to sing with me?
