I no longer sing with this local group. We were hoping to welcome new singers this past year but it apparently only takes TWO MEAN people to DISSUADE the integration of even TWO EXCELLENT and experienced singers. It's sad; can we spell, "HEY-MORONS!"
If you read sheet music you may be misjudged as to your abilities or you may be discouraged from studying your music as long as you and the Director find it necessary to do so by ... those same mean-spirited people who would rather play mean-and-down-dirty and who actually have not the slightest clue of which they speak EXCEPT they constantly refer to the circumstance of "once-upon-a-time", "they", did differently with a majority of people no longer singing with the Chorale. MANY in the last 10-12 years have become discouraged and have left the group. Hmmmph...can't imagine why when in actuality it is simply MEAN people who take all the "breath" out of fun and beautiful musical selections.
I used to sing one of 4 - 8 parts:S1S2A1A2T1T2B1B2
You may elect to practice weekly, pay dues monthly and still be ripped-off of the dues you agreed to pay when and if one, two, or all three of the mean-spirited members decide they don't like you, need you, or have any appreciation for you or whatever talents you contribute. As you may know in the "creative" music world some people choose an "uppity", (distasteful), persona as they think too highly of themselves and any "gift", (great or small), with which GOD has blessed them. There is no criteria for determining one's "value" amongst even a small singing group where a few jackals are allowed to "run" with their "airs", frivolity, and base inhumanity.
