    Preparing for the upcoming Laudate concert program “Timeless Treasures” (Sat., March 7 at the Gordon Smith Gallery, North Vancouver and Sat., March 14 at Pyatt Hall, Vancouver) has been full of surprises. I have been in the choir for a long time – I’m like a bad penny or a house guest with an undetermined departure date or a STI in that I just seem to keep coming back. So when I saw the program description “polishing our favourite gems”, I assumed, only partially correctly as it turned out, that the program would be full of pieces that we had done over…

  • The Armchair Feminist

    It’s now the start of summer though given the amount of rain and a scorching daytime high of 17 degrees, I question the season. Still, it’s time for another blog. This one has nothing to do with singing and music…

  • Ramblings of a Possible Synestetic

    I often mix certain pieces of music that I’m singing or listening to with other senses such as smell or with particular feelings or even with works of literature. I realize that crossing all of these wires together may put…

  • Only Connect

    If you are a literary sort or if you took a post secondary English literature course or two, you will know that the title of this blog post is a direct theft from the epigraph of E.M. Forster’s novel, Howard’s…
