And here we go! Here’s our poster for Music of the Storms, by our awesome designer Steven Keen. Perfect timing with this week’s weather in our neck of the woods, no? (Monday sleet, Tuesday warm, Wednesday …75 and humid, really?!, Thursday cold, Friday snow.)
If you know us, or have sung with us, you know that VCS – like the neighborhood we live and work in – is incredibly diverse. People from all over the place, who do all kinds of fun things for work. This post is from Joel Cline (pictured right), who in addition to being a bass and frequent soloist, also happens to be a meteorologist.
As in, we call Joel to make decisions about show night when the Capital Weather Gang is not as clear as we’d like them to be about things like rain, and snow, and storms. Yes CWG, we love ya, but sometimes we love Joel more.
More than anyone else we know, Joel gets how music, weather, and science go together. He gets why science education is worth supporting and exactly how natural disasters works, and he gets why we are going to sing about the weather on March 16, 2013. [Read more…]
And just like that we dive right back into rehearsals starting tomorrow, January 8, 2013 for our next concert, “Music of the Storms” – a great name for a concert, don’t you think? Because honestly, is there a culture or a place on the planet that doesn’t have music, poetry, art, and expression about the weather?
Save the date for Music of the Storms – 7:30 pm, Saturday, March 16, 2013.
And as always, if you’d like to come see us do our thing, see if we’re the right choir for you to sing with, you are most welcome to drop by open rehearsals — January 8, 15, 22 at 7:15 pm at Church of the Holy Comforter (off Beulah Road in Vienna, VA). [Read more…]
