So, along with photography, music is and has been a large part of my life for many years. I can't even tell you how many times I've seen the musical The Sound of Music and sung along. I grew up participating in choirs and such. Once I got to high school, I even joined the show choir! I spent two years in the all-girls group, Sound Unlimited, and one in the mixed show choir, The Music Machine (shown in the picture above which I borrowed from showchoir.com as I only have hard copies.) Bonus points if you can figure out which one is me lol. While the clique-y girls drove me nuts at times, I love to sing and we even had the opportunity to travel to Europe and perform in various venues (schools, retirement homes, and even in a pub/brewery lol). In fact, I can say that I am a member of the first show choir to ever perform at EuroDisney!
Before I took up singing, there were piano lessons (starting at age 6) which I truly wish I had continued. I discovered jazz in college and so wished I could be a jazz musician, but I just don't have the talent...sigh. I later attempted to learn guitar, but haven't kept up with that either. I still have my guitar though. Yet another hobby to work with:)
Now my involvement is usually limited to discovering new bands and music that I love...and singing along in the car of course!
