What was the last thing I said?

From Allen Simon at ChoralNet:

I sometimes entertained myself trying to guess what was the last thing a conductor said to their group before they went onstage for a performance. Was it "Remember not to scratch your nose, and don't wave to the audience, and watch the conductor"? Was it "Tenors, if you miss that F sharp this time the bus is leaving without you tomorrow"? Was it "God is singing through you today"? Often you could tell by their faces as they entered.

Do you remember the last thing I said before ACDA?

I love that "God is singing through you today." Wish I'd thought of that.

It could have been: "Look like champions."

Or: "Basses, get that A or I'm going to go touchdown on your head."

I agree with Marybeth. Not that Im dumb and can't find it, but that she is dumb and can't find it.

I believe it was "Walk like you own something rich."

I wish I'd been a little more profound than that. Let's all edit our memory and change it to "God sings through you today."
