The Choir That Couldn't Sing: Part 2

(uh-one and uh-two and uh-seven and uh-twelve)

Open your music packets, everyone! Quiet down now.

As you can see, I have carefully selected some classic songs for our European jaunt. After all, we will be singing in famous cathedrals and quaint churches and even The Vatican!

Here is our repertoire:
(I kid you not)

Seventy-Six Trombones - I bet the Italians have never heard this performed with a giant pipe organ before!

The Impossible Dream - Which should probably be our theme song.

The Italian National Anthem - Which we will sing everywhere we go, even though nobody in the choir knows how to pronounce any of the words.

Glorious Sparkly Whoop De Doo Hallelujah Song - An original composition by me, no no hold your applause, oh you are too kind, no really I think genius is too strong a term, but yes let's work on this one over and over and over and over. Sparkle while you sing it! And remember, louder is better!

... and then we went home to pack ...

God, I love you!
Wild, funny sarcasm that had me giggling.
I swear I could picture it.
And I just know the director had beads of sweat over her eyebrows and a sign of relief at the end.....

Funny! 'Sparkle while you sing'! Someone pass me the bucket.

Retired One: tee hee!! The director was actually a "he" - but a sparkly "he" as choir directors sometimes are.

Fran: You don't like sparkly singers? lol
