Did you know that there are 43 million choral singers in the US? That is the most people participating in any artistic endeavor.
Some 175 choral singers gathered at United Church of Santa Fe today for Santa Fe Sings!, the second annual event organized by Santa Fe Desert Chorale. Even City of Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales joined us as a tenor for the first half of the event, before heading out to give a commencement speech.
JAMBO CAFE ran their food truck in the parking lot just for this event!
What on earth do these choral posts have to do with communication and disasters? Well, choral singing is an activity that brings together diverse groups of people to unite in a common voice. It is a great example of teamwork. And, in this case, it was very much like spontaneous volunteerism. Some of us had sung together in other choirs and many met for the very first time. After just a few hours, however, we were able to learn four pieces for a mini concert. People coming together on the fly under great leadership can do amazing things.
