The End of an Era!

Last night I was able to attend the last Spring Concert that my High School Choir director would be directing because she has decided to retire! I now give much credit to my parents for sitting though all those concerts for all those years! Anyway that is besides the point, I didn't know anyone in the choir but I wanted to be there to feel that magic that Marsha Borovicka has been creating for 33 years! She has taught over 11,000 students and the best part for me last night was when I went to say hello during the intermission she called me by name as if I was in her classroom yesterday! Being there brought back so many amazing memories and feelings. The friends, the fun, and the music! That time in my life left a footprint on my heart and I will carry it with me for the rest of my life. Having Mrs. B as my director changed me and I feel blessed to have been one of the thousands. As anyone who ever went to a Chaparral Choir concert either in the audience or as a member of the choir knows at the end of each Spring Concert she invites all the alumni to come up and sing Friends, and I couldn't resist being a part of the last time that she would lead that song in that setting. I miss being a part of a choir, I miss singing, I mean I sing in the car and at home and to my babies but I miss the harmonies and the feeling I get when every voice is in tune and the sound fills the room and in some cases seems to reach beyond the walls! Ok so I will stop for those of you who feel like you are gonna throw up from my sentiment but I guess the point is that last night was a wonderful night! And I had the best date a girl could hope for!

You amaze me! I was so happy to see you last night and tonight! It was awesome to see so many people and to feel like a teenager again! To share moments and memories that were created within the walls of the choir room and on trips and at concerts because of this wonderful woman Mrs. B. It was wonderful that for 2 nights I was able to feel the magic again that she has shared with so many of us.

I appreciate you sharing some of your captured moments with me here is my email

It was so great to see you this weekend! I completely agree, It was wonderful to relive the memories of such shaping days in the Chaparral choir - it was the time of my life! And it was fun to come home and find your comment on my blog too! Thanks for taking that picture for me - I can't believe I forgot my camera! My email is whenever you have a chance to send it. Thanks again and it was great to see you!
