You guys really get to me sometimes

Jennifer Scively writes beautifully. I'm always touched by her thoughts and always thankful that choir has played a part in her life. She recounts some of her experiences on her latest blog--one that mentions our rehearsals:

What I realized was that I can look at communication as a very musical aspect because music is based on communication. In UAB’s Concert Choir, we used to spend entire afternoons picking apart our music looking for deeper meanings and discussing different technical things we could do to relay exactly what we wanted to an audience who couldn’t see the music and hadn’t been in on our discussions. There were moments during our performances when it was evident that we’d done our job and everyone in the concert hall was “on the same page,” so to speak. Those moments were intimate and sometimes spiritual. Everyone wants to understand and be understood and when that happens, communication can be a beautiful thing.

Thanks, Jennifer. You are a special girl.
