Music is food for the soul

Published June 26, 2014 by Harri

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination
and life to everything.” – Plato

For me this is certainly true. I haven’t sung as part of a choir since I was 16/17 years old.  I haven’t sung properly since I did my Music G.C.S.E. (I got a D grade as I couldn’t sight read). I was asked by a friend if I wanted to join a local choir. She had asked me a few times and I’d always said no, but I need to socialise and I need to focus on something that gives me enjoyment with no guilt.

I apologise if I think I am off key a lot but, that’s me. I think I will get better with that.


Anyway, I digress. I went tonight for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Singing along to the bits I picked up and yawning because it’s been so damn long since I actually breathed from my diaphragm that I couldn’t help myself. The women were lovely, I was so nervous and they welcomed me and everything.  I am currently a second soprano as my range isn’t as high as it is lower.

I was with people and I actually enjoyed myself, my introvert was quiet for a change. AND I am going back next week. x

Just thought I would update you all and let you know I am still breathing.
