Choral Truths

Posted at 12:23 PM on April 2, 2013 by Brett Baldwin (0 Comments)
Filed under: Choral Music

This month, as part of our Voices of Spring programming, we're having a little fun with those who make the music.

We're asking the singers, choir directors and vocal performers to share with us a little observational humor, so we're taking #ChoralTruths to Twitter. We're hoping that you'll share with us something that you see as being a universal truth from your spot on the risers.

The example we've been using is: "Altos always carry pencils." We don't know why; but it does kinda seem true. Have you ever seen an alto not carrying a pencil?

We'll pick the best and share them on Twitter and here too.

So go on, be merciless... and let us know your #ChoralTruths!
