"There Are No Words"

WE REMEMBER | On September 11, 2001, our world was forever changed by the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history.

It has been said that "When words fail, music speaks". While there are no words to express the depth of loss that occurred that day twenty years ago, we hope to offer comfort through song. Dedicated to those who lost their lives that day, "There Are No Words" shares the experience of a couple explaining the events of September 11th to their children.

May we never forget.

HALLELUJAH | A cherished song with underlying themes of hardship, love, loss, and redemption, Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah” is truly open to the listener's interpretation- often moving the audience to tears while simultaneously instilling in them a renewed sense of hope. A crowd favorite on tour, during summer concerts, and even at the White House, The United States Air Force Band’s Singing Sergeants have performed the Pentatonix arrangement of this hit song hundreds of times, and have come to embrace it as their own. We are grateful for the opportunity to share this enigmatic classic with you- turn your sound on, grab a tissue, and please enjoy!

"Hallelujah"
by Leonard Cohen

Beautiful Music🙏
Spent 4 years in SAC ( '66 - '70 )and never saw them in person but makes me proud of our mutual USAF connection!
Dear Friends, During the pandemic, I began to reflect on the many amazing experiences I've had as a choral singer. It led me to the idea of creating a new anthology that will celebrate the soul-stirring choral experiences we have as singers and conductors. I am thrilled to share news about the new choral anthology project, for which I will serve as editor and author. The book will contain inspiring, humorous, and heartwarming stories from the global choral community about choral music’s impact on our lives. You are invited to read more about the project and share your story at www.choralplanet.com. The submission period closes on August 7, 2021. There is no fee to submit your story, and a small stipend (and a copy of the book) will be offered for each story selected. Please help me to spread the word. Stay safe and have a wonderful summer!
A GREAT memory of 2020!

Opportunity for Veterans! New Musicals Inc (NMI) is adapting veteran's stories into ten-minute musicals to be filmed as part of a web-series to honor veterans. Veterans whose stories are selected for development will receive a $1000 honorarium and hold on to the rights of their stories. Don't let the "musical" aspect dissuade you. NMI just needs a compelling story from your military background – just one story – not a compilation -- and they will bring a composer, lyricist, and professional actor together to turn it into song. They will also welcome you into the collaboration process if you want to be included on the creative side. See the link for info and a very short video that explains the project. Deadline is November 20. www.nmi.org/veterans
This is positively beautiful and carries a great message.
