CBC radio 2 for me

Since I was a little girl I have always loved to turn the radio dial searching for classical music. I love the sound of the violins the voices of the radio hosts...

It is quite unlike anything the voice of a good radio host. The smoothness of the voice. It can't be someone who's voice comes in sharp contrast with the music being played, but plays on the pauses of the music like whispers.

And so one day I found CBC radio 2. I mean really found it. I had listened many times before but then I was unaware of what it was.

From that day on my radio was always on radio 2. When studying I would turn it on... When reading or embroidering...
It helped shape the music that I listen to, that I already loved.

It brought me closer to the music I love.

Many things have shaped me musically but listening to classical music on the radio, I believe, was one of the building blocks, that along with destiny and a bit of luck, led me to coral music.

Since the beginning of this love for classical music I have developed ambitions or dreams that have come true in the realm of classical music.
 I have sung Beethoven's 9th symphony, twice, once having been in a cathedral.
 I have sung songs from various opera's , last year the repertoire was all Verdi.

Sometimes the building blocks, our dreams will in fact bring us somewhere... The trick to this is that we don't know what will happen to us. Or when fate, or destiny will come into play.

Perhaps it is a question of love.

If we love something without seeking anything in return, maybe, just maybe it will look at us favorably and allow us to bask in its glow instead of letting us look upon it from a far...
