A good recording of the Reason Rally 2016 national anthem. August 2, 2016

Thanks to Mythicist Milwaukee for getting the big video of the event up so I could crop this!

It was also nice to treat music professionally again, for the first time in years, to push myself to sing as well as I could.  I ran scales all week.  I got a copy of the music and marked where I wanted to breathe.  Friday night while everybody was drinking and partying I drank water, didn’t talk much, and went to bed early.  Singing in the shower is great, but there’s a different joy to be found in putting in the time and effort to doing something to the very best of my ability.

Whether or not I could still hang with the pros is up for debate, but ultimately I’m happy with how we did.  I had a really good time, and I got to sing with an old friend.  Success or failure, I enjoyed it, and in the end I think that’s all that really matters.  🙂

(PS – Look for my article about the experience of performing at the Reason Rally in the next issue of American Atheist Magazine. 😀 )
