After BUF has sung, you are free to leave whenever you need to, but you'll want to stay to hear Tracy Spring and friends sing her new hit "Your Heart Is A Muscle the Size of a Fist"
Friday, January 11, 2019
Local composer Tracy Spring is debuting at least part of a new choral arrangement of Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist at the Co-op sponsored Martin Luther King Day celebration at BUF on Monday, January 21st starting at 7pm. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to give the SATB sheet music a try! She will send you a .pdf of the latest version. There are also sectional mixes of audio files available for those who prefer to learn by rote.
There will be a run-through of the piece somewhere in the building on the day of, at 6:15 pm, hopefully in the Sanctuary with Karen FitzGerald on piano (who is performing with Tracy), but if that space is not available for the run-through, probably downstairs.
