Tonight Quentin and I performed at the Vocal Honors Concert. (See the previous post.) This concert featured the top vocalists of the festival and also served as an awards ceremony. Quentin won the prize for best English Language Art Song. Woohoo!
One neat part of the concert was when we all sang O Canada at the start of the show. There’s something nice about a hall full of strong singers belting out the anthem that just makes me happy. The beautiful phrasing and impeccable diction were what you’d expect from a room of classical vocalists, but what really came across was the passion for singing and making music together. And I’m all for that!
