Six weeks later... April 27
So here we are, staying safe and healthy.
The windows are washed, carpets vacuumed, apartment cleaned, cupboards organized, puzzles done, colored pencils and markers worn out, many new recipes adding far too many pounds, walking about 20k a week. What else can I do???
So here is my latest project - I received it from a music director colleague in Sydney, Australia and I must say it was quite enjoyable. I just did one a day - and added a twist - I looked for recordings or performances of the songs I remembered - obviously it was quite a nostalgic exercise, but quite uplifting. I've included it here for anyone looking for something different to do. I also found it a great talking activity for a few of the video calls I do with friends.
That would be an interesting data bass for the choir to compile - it would be a great sing along list.
Anyway, I hope you are all doing well. I really enjoyed seeing Marg Laurette's 89th birthday celebration this week - Marg is a retired member of the NoteWorthy Singers.
There have been so many wonderful TV specials lately, it's kept me very amused. I have particularly enjoyed the international programs. Last Sunday, I watched the You tube special that ended with the two hours on TV. I was awed by the amount of wonderful young talent there is in the world.
I must admit though of everything I have heard in the last 6 weeks, the one that moved me most was The Prayer - so if you didn't see it, I've included it today.
I would be curious to hear of some of the interesting projects you have been working on in this challenging time. Not necessarily music. For example - has anyone started making masks? I'm looking for a few.
