Wednesday early morning greetings from Louisville.
It was a wonderful day here yesterday at the NPM convention. WLP sponsored the Notre Dame Folk Choir last night at Saint Boniface Church. Folks, it was one of those moving moments that are far too rare in this life. I believe these dedicated young adults helped us taste a bit of heaven last night.
Today is music showcase day here at the convention. For the first time, WLP, OCP, and GIA will present their showcases all on the same day. Hopefully the musicians here will have the energy for all of this. I am quite excited about the music in our showcase.We are doing a few Mass settings, but the majority of our music represents our solid choral selections. Rehearsal begins in just under three hours. Of course, I was up at the crack of dawn, reflecting on the concert last night, thinking about today's events, and getting just a bit more nervous about my plenum presentation on Friday, but all will be well.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
