Getting Ready for Virtual Choir 3

Before submitting a video for Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir 3 I wanted to see what I looked like when singing. The piece we’d be singing hadn’t been announced yet, so in this video I’m singing a snippet from Randall Thompson’s Peaceable Kingdom. (My choir was working on that at the time, and I love this chorus at the end.)

I know I’m repeating jokes I made early. I’ve only got the two.

  1. Hey…you should accompany your singing with the banjo for a little added pizazz.
    Been busy here. Had to clean the place up. Hosting two authors this weekend. Mark Hainds, “Year of the Pig” and Roger Reid, “Long Leaf”, “Space” and “Time”. Both are Naturalist type writers. Rogers books are ‘young-adult’ I guess. You should come sometime. We are covered up with “Snowbirds” this time of year.
    Library should be crowded tonite.

  2. Not at all horrifying…and I would call the sound pitch perfect. That’s not an easy jump to make but you handled it like a pro. You sound like you are singing from your stomach and not your chest or throat. There’s a distinct difference to the quality of the sound that creates. I’d be curious to hear your singing outside of a harmony line.

  3. Thank you!! I try to sing from the stomach, but if I start feeling insecure about whatever I’m singing then I start to freak out and god knows where’s it’s coming from then!
