Reason #193: When It All Comes Together
Too often, performances don’t come across the way we would hope they would. Someone has a bad case of nerves. The group lets the tuning or the tempo get away from them. The sound engineer has a slip, or the acoustics of the venue just aren’t conducive to a cappella music. An audience member sneezes at an inopportune time.
There are hundreds of ways in which an a cappella performance can go wrong, which is what makes it so special when everything does come together. When there are no excuses and we hear a top-notch group performing at its very best. Sure enough, this does require a team effort form booking the right venue, to the group putting in the time in rehearsal, the crowd clapping along in time when called upon. It’s rare for everything to work out, but it’s sure to be a special performance when it does.
I love it!
