Thoughtful Thursday - Story of My Life - ThePianoGuys

We bring who we are & our life experiences to any piece of music.  When there are no words, we either produce our own pictures or as here some lovely images are added for us.  The Piano Guys are SO good at this.

Musical Monday - We're The Superhumans | Rio Paralympics 2016

Oh my gosh.  This is a MUST watch, amazing video using music and singers, instrumentalists to introduce the paralympics and many of the athletes.  Thanks Elaine.  I know when I think I am having a bad day, this will make me think twice.  Success is indeed a state of mind.

Thoughtful Thursday - Epic Night! Featuring Rufus Wainwright + 1500 Singers sing HALLELUJAH!

Yes, Canadians can do the mass choir like no one else.  The OOO sounds are so right on.  I love the way they do the fugue like parts to the verses.  The sound in the old factory is just wonderful.  Look at the faces and see the enjoyment and pleasure all round.  Wouldn't you like to take part in one of these?

Musical Monday - SEND MY LOVE - Adele - Patty Cake

The harmony is just lovely.  The group dynamic is wonderful.  But the hand percussion is totally amazing.  Thanks Norm.  This is fun.

Thoughtful Thursday - Kiss Me Kate - Brush Up Your Shakespeare - Royal Albert Hall

At 8 our daughter went with her grandma & me to see Kiss Me Kate by the Windsor Light Opera.  The others on the bus were snoozing on the way home while Colleen sang this song most of the way back to Chatham.  Much later I got the opportunity to direct this musical.  This song is still one of my favourites.  Now, having this sung at Royal Albert Hall doesn't hurt.  I bet you will be singing this all day!  Just sayin'.

Musical Monday - In Canada Chris & Dave Hadfield

Chris Hadfield is a Canadian astronaut who spent long months as the commander of the space station.  He used social media to connect with the world from space.  He also used his guitar and song.  Here he and his brother share their song about Canada.  We are so proud of all Chris has achieved.  He has shared all he has learned with the world and with children especially.  His pride in his country shines in this song with his brother.  Enjoy!
