I’m sure that you’ve already seen this video and heard this awesome group. If you haven’t heard it already, please take a listen. It wa this song that was on repeat when I woke this morning.
Having been in both marching band in high school and in choirs for most of my life, I can tell you from personal experience that there is no experience that compares with making amazing music with huge groups of other musicians.
I’ve had my chance to take part in several giant groups. In 1998 at Band Day at University Mississippi where there were 5500 other musicians playing a Duke Ellington piece. In 1996 I was a baritone in the Louisiana All State Honor Choir with 360 other voices. Both experiences were unforgettable.
I hope that this event has been a precedent for more events of it’s type. I would love the opportunity to be part of something like it.
