It’s our lightweight choral riser that is cost effective. No tools, transport dollies, or extra hands are needed. Just roll it to the event location and unfold it. While the Fold and Roll Riser is in the transport position, the low profile provides better visibility over the top and its low center of gravity helps prevent tripping. Nylon bushings at pivot points keep the decks aligned, level, and safe throughout the life of the riser. The cantilever folding mechanism aids in lifting, so very little weight is actually lifted, minimizing the risk of back strain.
I've been listening to other's talking about why community is important. We were meant to be together to not feel as alone in life. It might be a little weird to some to experience choirs. They seem out of date and only needed at special services - like Christmas and Easter. However, that feeling you get around Christmas where you feel connected to family and friends, and even the world as a whole, is the same feeling that community has on a person.
I just got back from vacation a few weeks ago. I had the opportunity to go to New Zealand and the Fiji Islands. Don't freak out just yet. I did have family in both of those countries. Wait, does that make it worse or better? Either way, my family and I had a lot of fun. It was a restful and enjoyable 2 weeks. This meme explains my thoughts about coming back perfectly.
In researching choral concert series for you all to attend, I was wondering what it took to put on your own choral concert series in the summer. NPR has this great article on "Eight Things You Need to Know Before You Start a Music Festival". These three stood out to me:
- Do Your Homework
- Get Some Help
- Learn To Let Go
School is out! Take a breathe. Now get excited. I imagine now you're wondering what fun things you'll do this summer. Aren't we all?
Have you thought of summer camps for the kids or festivals for the whole family? I started researching things for me to do in the summer and of course music festivals came up. They're the staple for the summer in most cities. I'm based out of Chicago so I found many music venues and the summer set list for Milwaukee, WI festivals.
You can do this same search for local choral festivals and summer camps. If you have students that are in choral programs during the school year that want to continue having fun in the summer - sign them up for a camp in the summer! The local university in my town hosts music camps throughout the summer.
Maybe you just want to find your own music festival for a date night, or a family-friendly one. You'd be surprised how many you can find across the country. It might take some time finding one in your area, but here are some to start off with. I love making your work easier!
