The whole reason I am in Boston is to follow through on my personal dream to sneak back and surprise my choir for their concert. I tried to do it last year, but ended up canceling the flight because their Spring concert was far too close to finals week for me to both make the trip and pass school that semester. This Fall was one of my last chances to fulfill my dream and still have people in the choir who knew who I was, so I kept my trip super secret and strolled into sound check earlier this evening. For a first-person account of this, go here:
And now, for some pictures (nothing too innovative; all were taken from my seat area):
Tyler at the start of the [really awesome] liturgical dance.
I just like this photo. And she sang really, really well.
The choir had a huge amount of energy - it was wonderful to witness!
Herbert S. Jones, one extremely talented director.
This is my Dionte, with whom I used to sing in the front row of the tenor section. He had two really wonderful solos tonight; I'm so proud of him!
Everyone listening to Matlin's wise words.
I love Marsh Chapel (despite the fact the acoustics aren't too friendly with gospel music) and was happy to get to look at all its intricacies again.
Tyler was KILLING it as a director and brought some extreme joy and energy to his two songs.
It was an awesome concert with such great music - the trip was absolutely worth it.
[More to come from this event - stay tuned!]
