Choristers; professional and avocational
Hundreds of passionate, like-minded spirits
After months, weeks, hours of dedicated water-shedding
Tonight, all privileged to perform
To the gathering audience,
Performers are indistinguishable
(in standard black and starched white concert garb)
Like a waddle of penguins awaiting their momentous, impending migration.
A ‘waddle’ of anonymous (yet, uniquely talented) performers
Attentively awaiting the signal.
Poised. Waiting. Watching.
Maestro ascends to the podium.
Silence! Pick up cue…Downbeat…
In an instant, glorious silence-shattering sound!
Priceless, unrepeatable, unforgettable glimpse of beauty,
In an otherwise flawed world.
