222Re: [colorado-acappella] Sing for Peace Project
- Aug 1, 2002Marcie,
Thank you for your post about the "Sing for Peace" Project.
However, this sort of thing, unless endorsed by a major mover in our singing
community (like CASA, e.g.), carries political and commercial connotations
that go beyond the intent of this message board. I would caution anyone from
personally endorsing activities that might well serve to somehow alienate
some of our a cappella community.
No, I'm not talking ACLU stuff here. I just think we need to think of our
common interest within the music community and concentrate our ideas and
commentary there. While I don't feel as strongly about this as I do about
today's commercial scamming of our board (which I hope will be severely
dealt with), I am conscious that peace may be perceived in many different
ways and it's most relevant for us to concentrate on promoting a cappella in
a peaceful world than it is to promote peace in our a cappella world.
I hope you get hooked up with a group soon. You sound like an enthusiastic
and talented singer that any group would be grateful to include. Good luck.
