The Spirit of Song

Dr. David Tang, Conductor of VOX

Above all else, I love music. Nothing touches my soul like song. When I was in school, I participated in all things musical - mixed chorus, A'Capella choir, Madrigal singers, girls' chorus, girls' quartet and music camp. I studied classical piano for 10 years but alas never learned to chord and cannot play by ear.

My husband is also a great lover of music. He once played a mean trombone and participated in the Myers Park High School orchestra. He also sings very well but will not admit it. He really should be in a choir somewhere. But the point of this narration is not to tell you our personal experiences so much as to note (pun intended) that we have a great appreciation for fine music.

Charlotte is a city full of great music of many types. Today we attended a noonday concert of the VOX (Latin for voice) Choir conducted by Dr. David Tang. Also featured were members of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and the chorus from the Northwest School of the Arts. The music was pure perfection, especially the stunningly beautiful finale' - Oh Holy Night with both choirs, the orchestra, piano and orchestra. The audience was emotionally moved and on its feet at the conclusion. What a glorious event!
