Random musings about choir August 21, 2008

Last night’s choir practice was interesting. Made me thing about the generational differences in the choir and where I fit.

  • You know you’ve reached another generation when someone refers to a song from the 70’s as an “old hymn.”
  • You know you have some really elderly people in the choir when they have to leave early because they’re afraid it’s going to get foggy outside.
  • You can still think of yourself as a “younger” member of the choir when someone else refers to an old favorite that was a standard song from a hymnal you can’t remember using during your lifetime.
  • You know choir practice is going to be interesting when you sit on the piano bench and it’s wet. Why when a church roof leaks does it ALWAYS have to be right over the piano?
  • You have to remember when you’re in church and someone suggests lighting candles during a song that you shouldn’t suggest using a BIC lighter because it’s easier (you know, like you do when you go to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show). Somehow I don’t think that would go over well…
  • You know a woman has been a smoker most of her life when she decides to join the choir and chooses to sit in the bass section. 🙂
