I have been wanting to sing the Hallelujah Chorus for several years now. When I was in choir in High School it was tradition to end the Christmas concert with that song. It is a difficult piece and is not something that we would be able to pull off with our little and most of the time non -exisitant choir at church. I haven't had time to dedicate to the community choir at AU, so I've just been wishing the opportunity would present itself. Well, at Kayla's Christmas concert last night the choir director said, it's Hillsdale's tradition to invite anyone who has sang the Hallelujah Chorus in the past to come up and sing it with the choir. I was so excited! I got to do it, and it sounds like I'll get three more years of it! We weren't as majestic as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but it sure was fun!
It's funny how little things can make you happy. It didn't cost anyone anything to get me that little Christmas gift, but so far it's my favorite one, ...... next to my new kitchen-aid, of course!
