Ageless being and joyful song

When I was invited to sing in the chamber music ensemble at the college where I teach voice, I felt it was an honor and a blessing. To me this would be another opportunity for me to glorify God in song. This particular ensemble consists of faculty members—a violinist, oboist, and pianist, along with me, a vocalist. 

The ensemble organizer asked to hear some songs from my repertoire, which I sang for her. She liked my choices, and my first two years as a member were nothing but real joy from our first rehearsal to our last performance. Then came my third year. Because my primary training had been in opera, I didn’t have many more non-operatic songs of the same caliber as those I had performed in my first two years. Therefore, for the third year, I included a few operatic solos, of which she chose two.
