Inspirational Choral Quotes

Our school is going to be adding inspirational quotes in the hallways
throughout the school. I have been asked to provide a few quotes for the
music wing and more specifically the choir room. Any ideas would be
welcomed. I will certainly post a compilation if people are interested.


Thanks


Have a great day!!

Well, I managed to attach the .jpeg, but the Choralist moderator
rejected the attachment, so here it is without.

Hi, Aaron! I'm going to try to attach this as a .jpeg, but in case
it messes up, this is what we had up on the wall of The New
Virginians' rehearsal room here at Virginia Tech for 14 years, until
we had to move to a different building. There's also a story behind
it.


The difficult must become habitual.

The habitual must become natural.

The natural must become beautiful.

The beautiful will become magical.


The story: A friend of ours, a very fine voice teacher, had this on
her wall when I first saw it. It applies to every art form, and I
have had the privilege on two or three occasions in my lifetime to
see it come true on stage. It's rare, but it's what performers live
for. However, she was dating an amateur magician at the time, and
came across this in a magazine for magicians!
