Outfit: Seal Lullaby
Once again, choir has taken over my life a little, but once again I am not complaining. Yesterday we took first at our district competition. We sang one song in particular, Seal Lullaby, by the incredibly talented Eric Whitacre that now has a very special story attached to it. Our very talented accompanist has been expecting her first grandchild and wanted to give a recording of us singing Seal Lullaby to her new grandchild.
Yesterday, after singing what one of our adjudicators said to be the "most musical" performances of the song- our accompanist rushed off as soon as she could. Her grandchild had been born, on her birthday as well. We're going to give her that recording that now marks such a special and beautiful day.
Please remind me never to wear sweaters with giant holes when it's 28 degrees in the morning ever again. Anyways, have a great weekend everyone- in keeping with the choir takeover, I'm spending the entire day tomorrow with my a Capella choir...wish me luck! Only kidding- I love them.
