Just returned from Waco, Tx , where our 5 pc group did a series of
workshops and 2 concerts with the choral music dept. at Waco Hi School.
The choral director is very hip and wants her students to learn about vocal
jazz and improv. Three people in our group sing. Also 2 people are from
New Orleans.
The most amazing thing was; they have a 30 voice gospel group- totally
volunteer and run by the students. They meet before school every Tue
and Thur. The director is an amazing young man( hi school jr.) who the
students love and respect. He had total command and organization of
30 kids, his peers, with a very soft spoken and gentle manner. It was quite
impressive and inspiring. I think he has a great career ahead of him as
a director or teacher. The choral dir. said "How can you have a bad day when you get to start your day like this every Tue and Thur?"
Great stuff!
