Ahh November, the season when all the stores start playing Christmas carols I inevitably start humming songs from Handel's "Messiah" oratorio. The Messiah is one of my favorite pieces of music, but I have to admit that after years of performing it, one has to find ways to keep it exciting and new. Last April I had to pleasure of going up to Union, WA for a week and working with the Anna's Bay Chorale for their performance of the Messiah. (part II. you know, Easter) I just found a video from working with this group that not shows off my training in Dalcroze Eurhythmics (connecting music with movement) it also demonstrates one of my ways of keeping the Messiah "fresh".
To give subtitles to the dialogue, I am explaining about our wonderful stay at Harmony Hill and a little incident that happened with a clogged toilet and the plunger. Who knew it would turn into the highly motivating "Plunger Dance"? Enjoy!
