This is my first Illustration Friday – brilliant topic: VOCAL.
During rehearsal – always having ready a pencil for remarks – I make use of the empty white spots in the sheet music. One of my favorite motif is singing people. The expression of singing people’s faces is amazing. I have experienced wrinkles disappearing and unhappy people smiling when raising their voices. Magic!
Music is the language everybody understands no matter where you are from.
The sensation that the same classical works are performed in different corners of the world for ages makes me smile and feel being part of it. It brings people and our whole world together.
„Ode to Joy“ by Beethoven has been performed by our choir this week. Great moment!
To be honest, in my picture the soloist sang „Freunde, nicht diese Töne“ (O friends, not these sounds) in the beginning – advising but being confident at the same time.
The piece ends with joy and my picture became happier, too. Enjoy!
