Last night, I joined a small group of women from the Seattle Ladies Choir and sang on the Argosy Christmas Ship. After only four rehearsals, I didn't have very high expectations - in fact, I was sort of dreading it, and I even told my family members not to try to attend - but everything turned out much better than expected. There were definitely a few vocal hiccups, but overall I think we did well.
It was a freezing cold night, but whenever we were done singing a set, a bunch of us raced outside to watch the parade of boats behind us, bedecked with twinkle lights, and dance to the holiday music blared through the loudspeakers. And it felt a little magical.
