Spoleto Festival USA Day 7

It’s a Sunday and we have the day off! Woo! A ton of us are going to hit the local beaches and get some sun. To keep y’all entertained, I’m just gonna post a few amusing/inspiring/ridiculous quotes (mostly from Dr. Miller) that I’ve written down in my music from previous rehearsals. Enjoy!

“You’re unusual. Thank you.”
—-Jerry McCoy, after being a guest conductor for us last semester

“I want you to sound like you’re 10 days drunk and you’ve been smoking for 55 years.”
—-Dr. Miller, about Debussy’s Trois Chansons, 1/10/16

“I want to see some sparkle in your dead eyes.”
—-Joseph Flummerfelt, written in the copy of Debussy’s Trois Chansons that I borrowed from the library (the choir sang it 10 years ago under his direction)

“Don’t ever stop being silly.”
—-Dr. Miller

“The goal is not to match each other, but to resonate together.”
—-Dr. Miller

“It has to be perfect. So be perfect.”
—- Dr. Miller
