Words with many vowels

This is part of a series of pieces that was inspired by a binder I found at the Upcycle Parts Shop in Cleveland, Ohio. The binder was was kept by a vocal music teacher in 1947. This was one of the many words used in her vocal warm ups. Basically, it struck a chord (see what I did there?) with me. Music is one way we find connections. Through live music, church choirs, school music programs, Broadway, and karaoke...people gather and partake in something that is healing. What better way to praise, celebrate, appreciate, and participate then with song? It saddens me that song, breath, and the voice is muffled, discouraged and unsafe.
