Flash Mob Much? (Part 2)

Yesterday I talked about the flash mob I got to be involved with as a part of “celebrating tourism in Orlando.” That entry can be found here. Today I’m going to describe the flash mob I got to be involved with, thanks to my new choir, just about five weeks after that one.

After leaving our old chorus last autumn because, well, because of a lot of reasons, Joe and I joined a new choir in December. Rehearsals started in early February and so far it has been Read more…


Flash Mob Much? (Part 1)

How many people get to say that they were in a flash mob? Nope, not many. You have to know the right people, be available to be in the right place at the right time, you name it. Please allow me to toot my own horn for a moment…I was involved in not one but TWO flash months in the course of five weeks!

The first one was set up on, of all places, Facebook. Yep, that love-it-or-lump-it bastion of Read more…

What A Difference A Choir Can Make!

Last Monday was the kickoff of our new choir and all I can say is WOW! As I’ve watched the buildup of Central Florida Community Choir since October or so, I’ve seen a bezillion ways, big and small, of how things have been done “right”. Maybe one of these days I’ll sit down and Read more…

‘Tis the Season: Tooting My Own Horn

Yeah, I know it’s a little early but as far as I’m concerned, it’s the Holiday Season, which means virtually everyone who does virtually anything with music has things to do. Lots of things. Even amateur singing groups are not an exception so if I can briefly toot the horn of my choir right now: Read more…

Making a Joyful Noise

I joined another chorus.

The reasons behind that decision are part of a long, twisted story that I will probably share someday but for now, it doesn’t lend anything to my “new chorus” story.

The rather interesting part of my joining this new chorus is what kind of chorus it is – it’s based out of a Read more…

Night of 1000 Voices Concert: More Links!

I found some more links (photo stills, audio and video) in relation to the Night of 1000 Voices concert that we sang at the Royal Albert Hall this past May. They’re on the same page of the original blog entry, down towards the bottom.

Here’s the link:

UK Trip 05-02-10: Concert Day at the Royal Albert Hall!

Does anybody besides me have a mental list of the most exciting moments of their life? Our wedding day in 2002 was (and probably always will be) the #1 most exciting thing that ever happened to me, followed closely by the day we got engaged in the year 2000. Seeing all four of the Monkees perform together in 1989 was ‘up there’ as well (if you’re coming in late, I was a big ol’ Monkees geek from the mid-1970’s into the early 1990’s), as was our very first Sing Live concert in Orlando in 2007. My 5th most exciting moment was last year at our Sing Live 10th Anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall, simply because it was the biggest audience any member of Sing Live USA had ever seen as part of that chorus (2000 people, maybe?) and, let’s face it, it was the Royal Albert frickin’ Hall, people! But I have to say that being a part of the Night of 1000 Voices has worked its way ‘up there’ too, because….wow. Just…wow.

The alarm was set for 6am but I had Read more…
