I saw my voice teacher, Linda, last Sunday for the first time since she moved to Holland. She had some complicated personal business in the US to attend to – emigrating is not easy! Linda’s friends hosted a COVID-safe potluck in their backyard and at one point asked if we would share our musical talents. Kent spontaneously broke into Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and many of us sang along. It was only a stanza or two, but what joy and beauty there was in so many of Linda’s students and friends singing together! I’m, by nature, drawn to group and harmony singing. Those few moments scratched an itch I had forgotten I had.
When was the last time singing called to you and you ignored the call? Do you, also, enjoy group and harmony singing? If so, let me know. I’m looking into a couple of pre-recorded mini-concerts and would love to join with other musicians who sing and/or play instruments. Think folk-oriented music like Peter, Paul and Mary, perhaps some Mamas & Papas; that kind of thing.
Shortly after that Sunday potluck, two long-term girlfriends confirmed dinner here at my place, where I’ll be cooking the same dinner, in the same pot, that I did the last time I had Linda Frans and Richard over for dinner: https://laurahandke.com/simply-authentic-your-soul-voice-is-calling-my-soup-pot-has-a-story-in-three-parts/
Perhaps I’ll invite Jackie and Ginger to sing something with me!
How about you? Would you like to make some music this week? If so, put a date on your calendar.
