Come sing in the Candlelight Processional at Disney World's Epcot! An Experience of a Lifetime!

I'd like to tell you about an experience of a lifetime! Read how you can be a part of a choir's performance with the Candlelight Processional  at Disney World's Epcot.  My fiancé and I just signed up, and others of my friends and family have as well.   It is one of the greatest events I've participated in, and enjoyed watching too! 

It's almost to the deadline! Saturday at 9:30 is the first required rehearsal for this local choir.  Come one and all! 
From Joe, the director:
Hi Friends!
Do you like to sing in the car? Or the shower? Or with the radio? Or your iPod? Have you ever sung in a school choir? College choir? community choir? Church choir? Have you ever heard any song ever?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should keep reading this email!

Imagine, if you will, it is a beautiful December evening. You are at Disney World's Epcot theme park and you are walking by the American pavilion there. You hear beautiful singing and look to find a massive 300 voice choir singing on stage! They are holding beautiful flickering candles, wearing gold and green robes, singing like angels. There is an orchestra with them and a movie star too!
You stop and listen. It sounds something like this:

How would you, yes YOU, like to be one of those phenomenal singers?
Well, now you have a chance! Anyone who can carry a tune is welcome to join with the Plant City Community Choir as we prepare for and audition for our 3rd year in a row! For the past two years, we have been accepted and we are looking to make this year number 3! All of our singers will agree that this is such a fun, exciting, musical experience. And, to top it all off, each singer receives two FREE Disney tickets to use in 2012!

So what should you do if you want to go with us?! It is simple! Send an email with your name and email address to: candlelight@pccommunitychoir.com

When I came back from singing in this event, I knew I had to take my now-fiancé to see this magnificent and edifying performance.   What a beautiful sight it was!  We had a wonderful time.  I hope you too can enjoy it.  Being a performer is a whole new world.  :)
If you miss the chance to sing with this choir, there may be others in your area that are participating.  Or you could start your own. :)

Musical Minds

Watch excerpt:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q49Bs0Gp7OU  

  I may be one of those "musically inclined," but I still think that this fantastic science documentary, Nova's Musical Minds would fascinate just about anyone.  Especially if you're reading this blog!  :)  (At a later point, I might post my thoughts on why everyone should be musically inclined!  For now, I'd just repeat music is God's gift to all. )

If you read the note left by the uploader on You Tube, you'll learn a little more about this film and its very personal .

 The site for the film is:


I am trying to find out when it might air again, and also if it is available on DVD.  June 30 will mark two years since its premiere.
