Hey Hey! Coming out of my cave (sorry I’m not active on here so much anymore!) to remind you all about my favorite quote about music school, brought to you by composer Eric Whitacre:

School is stressful and can be a whole lot of awful at times but stick to what you love and you’ll make it through! We’ve got this :)

When David heard that Absalom was slain He went up into his chamber over the gate and wept And thus he said; When David heard that Absalom was slain He went up into his chamber over the gate and wept And thus he said; My son, my son O Absalom my son Would God I had died for thee!

10 years ago I sang "Lux Aurumque" in the first virtual choir by Eric Whitacre with 184 fellow singers.

Now, many virtual choirs later, I joined 17,571 other voices to "Sing Gently."

At a time when human connection is so desperately needed, this is an absolute balm to my soul. To be witness to and a part of the growth of these choirs is a genuine pleasure and honor. Voices from all over the world together as one like this is not only a technical achievement like no other, but also a masterfully beautiful expression of our human connection and need for one another.

Eric's music is a conduit for such deep love and humanity. I hope you'll take a listen and be encouraged by it.
