I loved what a student posted on my Facebook page after Concert Choir rehearsal recently, “The moment when you can say you had an ab workout because you laughed so hard at your choir director and accompanist’s funny stories. #ilovechoir#wedontjustsing” Maybe we should get t-shirts that say #wedontjustsing.
A webpage blog is probably not the best place to share the stories, but they came out of a spontaneous moment in rehearsal talking about the journey of a life with God. Last Spring the choir sang a piece written by a former student who has, this year, received international recognition for his compositions. Here’s a link to his website http://www.enloemusic.com/works.html – his journey is exciting to watch.
We don’t just sing, or play or dance at Inspire One – but have freedom to live out the compassion that God has given to us – not as a fire-hose, but as a cup that overflows with His goodness. I don’t have the same opportunities in the school setting, but that makes concerts, Enrichment programs and other events where we come together, all the more important.
