The thrill of watching the orchestra conductor's face

One of the most rewarding activities I've taken up recently is singing for the Willan Choir at VCC.
Directed by our delightful Patricia Plumley, we joined our voices with the Douglas College Singers in the Centennial Concert of the NWSO.

What a thrill to sing on stage surrounded by all that wonderful music. Until our final rehearsals, I'd only ever seen how a symphony conductor works from the back.

Yesterday afternoon I enjoyed watching the expressive face and hands of magician Jack (Jin) Zhang as he  coaxed music from our very souls.
