What a Thrill!

Dear BUF Choir,

Last nights rehearsal was, if you can excuse the high school terminology, Totally Epic! For a first read on that music, the orchestra was totally amazing. I can't wait to hear it on sunday. Orchestra aside, The CHOIR was in rare form. I could just tell that you were all totally stoked by the sound that was coming at you and you really rose to the occasion. For as much work as it is to put this all together, It is totally worth it to bring all these wonderful people together and make such special music. I can't wait to see the look on the congregations faces when we blow into the "U Fal Me Wako" section and tear the roof off of our sanctuary.

We need to show our Orchstra that we appreciate them as much as possible. Although the idea of "Adopting" an orchestra member is touching The organization of such a thing proved to be a bit over the top. so we went to plan B. Barbara Guilde purchased $10 Starbucks cards for every single one of the orchestra members. If all of you were able to bring $7-$10 on sunday to pay back Barbara that would be great. Also there will be cards to sign for each orchestra member so after our rehearsal which should go to about 9:35 or so, we need to get to signing cards and making them feel appreciated.

Lets do the card signing in the old social hall.

I am so blessed to stand before you and be showered with your enthusiasm and love for this strange and beautiful art that we do. I am truly humbled. We are on the edge of something magical, and I am looking on with excitement and gratitude to this sunday when we can share our love for our congregation and each other.

In Harmony

  1. Hi Andy,
    Thought the choir and orchestra were great this morning. Was the Baba Yetu piece recorded? If so, will it be on the web site?
