What a weekend . . .

It was quite a weekend, wasn't it? I feel like I've been slammed since last Thursday. All day Friday, all day Saturday, all day Sunday. (The picture here is of the high school honor choir on Saturday morning.)

Many thanks to the Concert Choir for the wonderful performance today. I envisioned that MLK performance months ago, and it happened today just like I wanted it to happen. The recorded speech was special, your processional was effective. To me, there was something holy about the moment . . . did any of you feel something out of the ordinary for that performance and that audience?

Would love to read your thoughts in the comment section below.

Well, I jumped the gun and posted on the last post already. . . what phrase did you search to pull up the Mad Magazine/TV picture?

Philip L. Copeland said...

I believe it was Alfred B. Newman.

Make that Alfred E. Newman.

I loved hearing actual verbal reactions from the crowd; and, processing in to Dr. King's speech was almost ethereal. His delivery really spoke to me and helped me understand the text so much better. It was amazing, a great opportunity.

I feel like I deserve this day off now. YOU were what the audience came for. They wanted a tribute to Dr. King and YOU gave it to him. A comment from someone sitting near me ("All right, finally.") I had tears in my eyes as the recording of his passionate speech told us what he wanted to be remembered for at his funeral, POWERFUL. What a sermon! And you quietly processing in, WOW... you sang amazingly well, your selections were perfect. We, the audience, don't hear any boo boos! You are too critical of yourselves! That may just be what makes you so great! Your solos were lovely girls. Your facial expressons mean so much, (I come with my binoculars now so I can watch your faces! heehee) Your attention to Dr Copeland and pleasant faces :)...what a choir Dr. Copeland has molded you into!
I always love to hear you sing! (I can't get any solos from my personal choir member friends and family!) I don't miss any concerts if I can help it! Thank you for another special experience.
