On July 23rd, aka next Tuesday, at 8pm, I’m going to be giving a presentation about the History and Science of Group Singing at the Observatory in Brooklyn ($5 admission). I’ve got all the photographs I need, I think, and today I’ll be making notes and practicing my talk. I’ll try it out first on these guys.
I took that picture when it reached 1,000 degrees in New York City. I’ll never understand cats. They don’t necessarily seek out the warms spots when it’s cold and they don’t sit in the path of the air conditioner when it’s 1,000 degrees out.
Anyway, come to my talk. The truth is, public speaking scares me a little so part of me is thinking, “No that’s alright, you don’t have to come to my talk.” But the people hosting my presentation would not be thrilled to read that. So come to my talk and I will explain, convincingly, why you should sing even if you don’t think you’re particularly great at it.
