I'd Like To Join A Choir
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I love to sing. When I am at home, I often have my radio on. I listen to a station that plays Top 40 music. When I hear songs I like, such as "Edge of Glory", "Hall of Fame", "Daylight", or "Just Give Me a Reason", I turn up the radio and sing along with it. The radio is set up in my kitchen, which works well when I am in the kitchen, cooking and cleaning. I would like to get out of my kitchen and sing with a choir, however. I can imagine myself putting on a white blouse, black skirt, pantyhose, and my Mary Janes and joining the second-soprano section to sing familiar songs in front of a crowd, like I did when I was in middle school. There are two problems with this idea, however.

First, in order to be prepared for the concerts, I would need to attend practice regularly. I could not go to just one or two practices. If I did, I would not know the music. The night of the concert would arrive, and I would be standing on the riser, not knowing what to sing. Choir members standing on my left and right would be listening for me to sing, but they would hear nothing. The expression on my face would likely be a mixture of panic and uselessness. I do not want to panic, and I want to feel needed and useful. If I went to practice regularly, I would know the music. Therefore, I would not panic. I would also feel useful, because I would be another voice contributing to the beauty and fullness of the soprano section.

Going to practice would take gas, however. My husband and I often have to choose between using the gas to go to a medical appointment or using it to go do something fun. The appointments usually win. If our financial situation changes, or if, at some point, we live in an area where I can safely walk, bike, or rollerblade to practice, I may be able to join a choir. In addition to this problem, however, there is one more concern: I do not know who is in the audience.

Most of the audience members would likely be nice people who wanted to see a choir concert. If some members of the audience had some problems, however, the choir's safety could be at risk. Some of us may get hurt. There is the possibility that I could be one of the ones hurt, but if I let the fear of getting hurt stop me from joining a choir, I would also avoid doing other things that I love. This is no way to live. I have performed in many concerts, and I have been fine.

Hopefully, I will find a choir that is in need of another voice. I can then do what I love.
