Laura McDonald reports that she has fallen in love with the Lamentations of Jeremiah done at the Summer Conference of 2001.As she continues, "At first I assumed it wouldn't work in a church situation.Then I noticed the scripture basis in the September lectionary and decided to do it.Starting rehearsals mid-August, it was a challenge for the beginning of the year.Then – September 11th.It was slated for the following Sunday.Feeling the grief a bit too raw, I postponed it and pulled a good arrangement of "How Firm a Foundation".By the next week, I was convinced we should do the Lamentations, based on the Hebrew tradition of voicing grief in worship.

Thank you, Laura for the snapshot of how music always provides an answer for what we need and reminds us of the power in the human voice raised in song.Laura teaches K-4 music at North Harrison Elementary and is Director of Music at Saint Marks UCC.She is very proud of her 25 – 30 voice Chancel Choir and an a cappella group, St. Markapella.She is a great booster of the Summer Conference reporting that she has received great pieces from share sessions, reading groups, and especially clinicians at the summer events.
Laura McDonald is glad to be the beneficiary of Linda's program where she and Angela Hampton's high school program provide a solid basis for adult singers in the area.
No better way to end our Hoosier Hysteria than to remember "Here's to song, here's to time, here's to both with friends of mine…..Kings have riches widely lain, lords have land but then again, we have friends and song no wealth can buy."
