Why I sing
Jim Salomon | Bass
Making a beautiful sound in a group – breathing together, locking onto a pitch — feels great even during warm-ups. Learning a piece of music offers an insider’s view of the composer’s vision — harmony, dynamics, rhythm, text, and the way vocal parts fit together. Choral work is enormously satisfying; sharing an artistic expression with an audience can be transcendent.
“But the work really popped with the entrance of the Singers in the ‘Ode to Joy’ finale. At that point there were about 200 musicians making a glorious noise on the Vets stage”
