Choral Outreach

This past weekend I spent with my choral brethren on a small tour of Minnesota. We performed at Gustavus Adolfus college in St.Peter, and then again at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall. 

The trip was fun and very rewarding (albeit tiring).  The bus (and hotel overnights) are a definite bonding experience and offer the chance to get to interact with many of the choral members.  So that’s good. 

Plus, we get to get out and perform in front of “red staters”.  I mean, Marshall is basically in the Dakotas and pretty rural. And we got a good audience for that performance. 

Although half the performance was the Beatles music, the first half was much more emotional and message-containing. One piece called “Testimony” was written as part of the “It Gets Better” campaign. The first half of the piece is all quotes from kids about how they are hiding and miserable and want God to kill them.  Very depressing stuff. 

But then the piece turns and ends with a positive message about hanging on and getting all sorts of opportunities in the future if you just wait. 

Not a dry eye in the house. 

All it all, it was a good trip and I’m glad that I went. I’m still tired and recovering from it, though. And I have just about gotten rid of my cough.
