I published this poem in October 2016. Today’s Daily Prompt prompted me to look for this poem. I would like to share it with you again.

Daily Prompt: Synchronize

Synchronization and Balance in Music

In an orchestra, the musicians who play different instruments have their seating or standing positions in a certain order for the balance of the sound,  A Full Orchestra and a Symphony Orchestra have different seating orders.

When we were in Austria, we attended a Mozart / Strauss Concert. The music was played by a Symphony Orchestra. We enjoyed my favorite Waltz, The Blue Danube by Johann Strauss, Jr. and Mozart’s popular symphony.

52 Weeks of Thankfulness – Week 6

52-week

This is the 52 Weeks of Thankfulness – Week 6 at Haddon Musings

I’m thankful this week for having 45 minutes of touching, contemplative Good Friday Concert presented by the Choir and orchestra tonight. The concert presented the message of the Lamb of God sacrificed Himself for our redemption. We were grateful that our new pastor was part of presentation. He read the scripture and prayed before our singing. He appreciated the choir’s service to the church.

The choir has been singing for over 50 years. Some of the members have been together from the beginning. We are not merely a choir but a family, a support group that uplifts each other. Some members are in their 60s, 70s, even 80s. In the first photo, the members in the front row were sitting down because of their physical limitation. They don’t let their physical conditions discourage their participation in singing. In fact, praising God with their voices becomes their strength.

The former pastor who stayed with us for only a couple years almost dismantled the choir. (The previous pastors stayed for 20 years each.) We went through a most difficult time in our choir history. Yet we still met and prayed together regularly even when we were not scheduled for singing.

The new pastor embraces all age groups of the congregation. He also appreciates classical, traditional, and contemporary music. The choir has a greater hope to be included in the services in the future.
