To my new choir.
Something different happened to me this morning.
I woke up calm and I felt an intensity that has been lacking in myself for a period of time. I don't know how long, because it is the kind of thing that you don't miss when it isn't there, if that makes any sense.
Yesterday's rehearsal showed me that I'm on the right path, that I'm doing the right thing. After auditions, I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to point sixty-plus people in the right way - that I couldn't teach them to do the same exact thing at the same exact exact time. I was afraid that we were too big to create the kind of nuance that is required of an incredible choir.
I saw enough promise yesterday to know that I stand before a choir with enormous potential, both for today and tomorrow.
It will be an incredible year.
