We had an extra choir rehearsal this afternoon. This was for the people who have missed rehearsals and/or need extra help and we have a couple of them every semester. Everyone needs extra help this semester though, because what we’re singing is so challenging. (I’m looking at you, Charles Ives, and your Psalm 90. Oh, I just read that he suffered from anxiety attacks. Okay, I forgive him for the challenging music. Anxiety attacks are the worst thing in the world, I used to get them when I was in my twenties. If you’ve never had them, you just don’t know. They are horrible.)
On the way to practice I passed by pigeon man in Washington Square Park.
And on the way back, on 14th Street, I met a singer/musician named SK. He told me to take his picture because he’s going to be famous someday. I’m rooting for you, SK!
