Mixed Media Monday - Meaningful Music

Whenever I hear Bette Midler sing "The Rose", I think about my high school choir. Our conductor chose this piece for us to sing at an end of the year concert and I remember thinking that it was beautiful right from the beginning. After many weeks of rehearsal, we donned our white blouses and dark blue long skirts in anticipation of the performance. After parading out on stage and standing stock still, the baton was raised and we began. We sang it with meaning and with emotion and the audience responded by remaining perfectly still for just a few seconds after we finished as though allowing the memory of the music to surround them. I found it to be a very powerful experience and one I've never forgotten. This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday this week.
