Yes, yes, I know. It’s been ages that I’ve written a blog post.
So, here I am again, still trying to muddle through all the small and bigger challenges of this global pandemic that has affected the musical part of my life in a big way.
I don’t want to go on about how hard it is that concerts and recitals are cancelled and that livestreaming directly from “my” churches isn’t possible due to slow internet connection and that I miss my singing students and my choirs and all the rest, but I want to keep my eyes on the future and on my plans.
There’s still the possibility that concerts and recitals will be possible this year, so I will continue to work on my programmes and I have lots of ideas for new pieces.
For this blog, I have decided that I will concentrate on writing about music. In the past, “musical” blog posts have had more attention than everything else and one funny thing is that when I search e.g. for “organ music” and “female composers”, my own blog posts come up in the “top 10” of the search results, so I guess that’s pointing me into that direction, too. 😉 Of course I will still write about other topics whenever I feel like it and I will also make sure to write in both German and English.
I’m currently testing a new online format to bring organ music to people who don’t have the possibility to visit a church and listen to music there and as soon as I can say more about it, I will. I’m also working on offering online voice training, so if you’re interested in this, just drop me a line.
Today, I would like to share an article by my musician friend Erica Sipes where she writes about musical misperceptions and it’s really worth reading! The article resonated with me in several ways and I hope I’ll find the time to write something about this, too.
Until then, I hope you’ll come back to this blog every once in a while and thanks for reading!
