I'm a writer and my new book, Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others, (Algonquin Books, July, 2013) is an eclectic history of group singing, pieces of music both famous and forgotten, the science of singing, and all the benefits that come from being in the middle of a song. “Life is hard, battles of all kinds continue to rage around us, and disappointments accumulate. But singing is the one thing in my life that never fails to take me to where disenchantment is almost non-existent and feeling good is pretty much guaranteed.”
I also tried to portray the choir director's point of view, both from an artistic and a practical side. Anyway, it's great to discover this site. I've been singing with the Choral Society of Grace Church in New York City my entire adult life. I cannot imagine life with out it.
