Other local singings

Palo Alto World Music Day

We sang at Palo Alto World Music Day again, for the first time since COVID hit. Actually, it’s not World Music Day this year, it’s World Music Month, with performances spread out over three or four weekends.

Our venue was on California Ave. on the street — not our usual venue under an overhang. I was a little apprehensive about singing in the open, since the sound can get lost, but it turned out fine.

In fact, it was one of the best singings I’ve been to ever Maybe it just feels that way because it’s only the second time I’ve sung in person since lockdown. But there were some fabulous voices who showed up, some really excellent singers. And the number of singers was good, too — about 16 I think — so there was good coverage on every part, but it was small enough that the singing was pretty tight.

Singing at home

In person again

For the first time since lockdown, we sang together in person in Palo Alto today.

We were outdoors, for COVID safety, under the solar panels over the parking lot. The sound wasn’t great but it was pretty good.

And it felt amazing to sing with other people in person.
