Singing at home


A new singer — I think tonight was his second time singing — stood up to lead “Sherburne.” The class responded to his solid beat, and really sang out. I was sitting next to Lucas in the back bench of the bass section, and I murmured to him, “Rock on!”

“It sounded like Queen!” he said.

It took me a minute to realize he was referring to the 1970s glam rock band. “You’re right, those chord progressions, yeah,” I murmured back. “Now all we need is Freddy Mercury in the trebles.”

He grinned and nodded. He was about to add something, but the next person stood up to lead a lesson and we turned our attention back to the class.
