This will probably be my last post for the year unless I find some time during the rose bowl festivities (GO FROGS!). So I had a few SHORT items to share with you all.
Although Christmas music may not be high on my favorite music list, I hope you sing this Holiday season. While watching It’s a Wonderful Life, I realized just how much singing in our culture as a communal form of expression has diminished and all but dissapeared.
Yet, I bring two tidings of great joy:
And a Cage quote:
When someone asked John Cage about the Hallelujah chorus in Handel’s Messiah inquireing, “Do you not like being moved?” Cage replied:
“I don’t mind being moved, I just don’t want to be pushed.”
Finally, I want to also thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the support of CV. It has been a rewarding experience and it will hopefully continue on for many more Christmases. This next year will be a big one on Contemporary Voice, and I hope to see you (and maybe a friend) here next year. Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
