The Musical Home I Need

I found my voice in the church. I did not grow up a singer. When I was younger, I played instruments – the piano and the saxophone. I always loved being a part of an ensemble, but I never thought I had it in me to sing. I knew I could carry a tune, but singing was scary and much more vulnerable. I grew up in the Catholic Church and always had an appreciation for good sacred music. The church I attended had a great choir, and I accompanied on my saxophone all through middle and high school. Those choir practices reading music and transposing by sight were formative, both musically and spiritually. I no longer attend the Catholic Church, and it is incredibly rare for me to pick up a saxophone.
