I just joined in a huge tradition at the school where I work. Every Christmas, on Thursday night and Friday morning assembly, the high school chorus and orchestra – with their new best friends from the faculty, staff, and returned alumni – perform selections from Handel’s Messiah.
It’s a lot of fun, and this year, I was able to sing with girls that I know because I’ve coached them and/or know them from church. Kinda made me miss choral singing.
It was fun, even though it was hot onstage under those lights. A few girls on the front row passed out during a long stretch. Poor girls – I am happy to report they are okay!
It definitely put me into a great mood! Here’s a funny contribution from the Peanuts:
