If you were at any of the musical events in which I have participated during the last two weeks, hopefully they would have been music to your ears.

I love harmony and enjoy singing in choirs.  I also enjoy and am good at creating parodies and some original music, so the other week I participated in my company’s United Way kick-off ceremonies by singing parodies I wrote with accompaniment by my ukulele and a CD I created with my electronic piano and my Mac.    Great fun – I do this every year.  This was part of a talent show and last year I tied for 3rd place with the juggler.  We haven’t yet heard the results of this year’s show.

The following week, last week, our choir at work gave three concerts, which were very good.  We were in excellent harmony.  I had to switch from soprano to alto because not enough altos were able to get out of their regular jobs to participate.  Whatever makes the music!

Saturday night I participated in my Temple choir in a concert at our Selichot service, a service prior to the start of the Jewish holiday Rosh Ha Shanah (Head of the Year).  Most of the singers are professional singers so the quality is wonderful.  I really enjoyed doing that and the congregants who were there just loved the music.  More to come during our services.

This concert followed a study session with the Rabbi, which I attended till I had to rehearse.  There was also a wine and cheese party. But since I can’t sing after eating, especially dairy, I refrained.  Maria, who is part of our custodial family, put away a cheese plate I selected for me that I accessed from the frig before going home.  Enjoyed that later!  Can’t drink wine and drive and sing, so didn’t do that, either.

There’s something about the music, the harmony, and the wonderful acoustics in our sanctuary that just warms my heart and gives so much pleasure. 

I hope that whatever you do for fun is music to your ears…
