Evolution of Dance

This has over 83 million hits on YouTube so somebody out there in the Intertubes likes it.

Be glad the choreographers took pity on us for "Shake It".

Eyes Wide Shut

An exchange at choir practice last night

Bob: Try making your "ooohs" darker. Like the tenors are doing.

(we sing)

Bob: Sopranos, don't forget to watch for the rest.

Soprano: Hey! My eyes were closed...that's the only way to make my ooohs darker.

Choir Geek

Northland Chorale: Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance!
  • Dates: 5/9 at 7:30, 5/10 at 7:30, 5/16 at 7:30 and 5/17 at 2:30 (SAT matinĂ©e - not our usual Sunday)
  • Price: $12 adults/ $10 seniors/ $8 kids (tickets can be bought through me, at the door or online)
  • Place: DL Parsons Theater at 11801 Community Center Dr. in Northglenn
  • What: Come see my new heart in action as we sing - and DANCE - to songs about dancing. Gary Carnes will be emceeing/hosting/making you laugh. This will be our most dance intensive show and we are dancing to all but two songs - several people have actually lost weight. Should be a great show.

Sine Nomine: Singing our Lives
  • Date: 5/31 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Price: $10 recommended donation
  • Place: Park Hill UCC at 2600 Leyden in Denver
  • What: This is my chamber chorus. We don't dance :-) The show will feature the GALA set we'll be performing in Miami this summer along with music we're singing just because it's fun and just because it's pretty!

Colorado Symphony Chorus: Carmina Burana (Chris's choir!)
  • Date: 5/18 at 2:30 (this is the date I'm going, but they are singing it all weekend)
  • Price: All depends - we may be able to get some half price tickets.
  • Place: Boettcher Concert Hall at the DPAC in downtown Denver
  • What: If you've never heard Carmina Burana performed live before, the CSO chorus is who you want to hear it done by. They are fabulous and I daresay this could be one of their signature pieces.

The Name

Last year, we all did the Heart Walk in downtown Denver. For us humans, it was a great day. The sun was warm and we were celebrating a heart all whole.

But for the Claude the dog - it was a CAR RIDE! a WALK! human FOOD! new SMELLS! And, he got to do it all with the people he loved most in the world. With a dog's memory span, it was highly conceivable that this was his best day of life.

Just like every day has been for me since 8 Nov 2007.
