S is for Singing
Singing is much better than any pill
I’m in a place where time stands still,
All my worries fade away
Singing is a time to play,
Singing brings out such emotion
It soothes me like a magic lotion,
Singing connects me to my soul
Pushing me to a higher goal,
I feel such joy in every song
Singing is where I belong.
I have been in the Village Voices Women's Choir for almost 9 years now. www.freewebs.com/villagevoices
It has been such an enriching experience being able to share with a group of supportive women, all united to create beautiful music. We work hard but we have fun, too. Our passionate and incredible director, Karen pushes us further than we think we can go and we're always amazed to realize we actually did it. Our accompanist Tina is so talented and makes us sound so good. I feel so fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful group.
And I love being able to share our music with audiences, whether in seniors' residences, nursing homes, or at our concerts. Our main Spring concert is coming up on April 28th so we're getting ready for that and practicing hard.
As our motto says, "Singing is cheaper than therapy."
Here is a Smilebox video I created of us singing "All the Pretty Little Horses" at our most recent concert at Oak Park Residence in Ottawa this past Saturday. I used photos I took on a bike trip last spring of a nearby farm and all its "Pretty Little Horses."
