Sunday session – Inspired

Standard

YAY! It’s time for another (belated) Sunday Session with Thea 🙂

I’ve just been away on an inspiring weekend…with other mums like me from all over Queensland. The organisation that we’re all a part of is called MOPS, and it is an organisation that encourages me to be the best “me” that I can be, with all the different hats that a mother has to wear! If you want to find out more, head on over to the website…http://mops.org.au/

I was very fortunate to be part of the music team that played for the weekend, so the music from the weekend is still playing in my head. Despite having practically no voice, the lovely Cath (http://squigglemum.com/) did a great job leading out team (among other things) as best as she could, and I met some new friends. When I first heard this song a few years back I was in tears, and playing it over the weekend has been a great encouragement for me. I love Brooke Fraser‘s music and lyrics.

While away I found out that Alison, our amazing keyboard player, will also be playing in a concert with me in a few weeks. We’ll be playing with the Queensland Philanthropic Orchestra. It’s a great way to combine our professional experiences with music, and supporting a good cause. One of the pieces on the programme is Leonard Bernstein’s “Symphonic Dances from Westside Story”, which I have fond memories playing at my very first National Music Camp. Enjoy the choreography in this snippet from the Westside Story movie…

So what have you been listening to this week? Feel free to link up with Thea if you’d like to share it with us 🙂

  1. I just love Sunday Session. It allows us all to be exposed to music we might never have heard otherwise. I really enjoyed the Desert Song, but haven’t heard it before.
