Time Flies When You Do the A Cappella Thing
by Florian Städtler
I could hardly believe it when I realized it a few days ago: Vocal Blog just turned ONE. One year ago we launched this blog, the Facebook group and our Twitter account.
Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine what a few blog posts, the occasional Facebook chat, a list of links and small but steadily growing number of fans, followers, readers and (best of all!) people joining the a cappella conversation can do to your life.
I want to thank my team, Fabian Fehrenbach (he.da.techie), Andrea Kühn (greatest communicator ever) and Deniz Dönmez (bazaar in her veins + subcontralto phone voice) for supporting a boss seemingly gone mad 2.0. All these girls and guys are (way) younger than I am and quite often when I turned up with another “amazingly innovative concept of marketing” they rolled their eyes, looked at each other and finally surrendered to my desire to not only dip a foot into the water of the social a cappella web, but jump right into it.
Not all the things we planned worked out as planned. But Vocal Blog is a rewarding experiment and hopefully the whole community of singers, agents, managers, arrangers, promoters, choir conductors and fans will have lots of fun and the occasional learning when checking out the blog, the Facebook group or what we contribute to the Twitterverse.
And to all of you out there, doing the good thing = the a cappella/vocal/ choir thing: Thank you so much for joining us and keep following what lies ahead. You made time fly.
If you could make a wish – what would you like to read, listen, watch or learn about in year #2 of Vocal Blog?
Do you have something to contribute yourself, something that the community could be interested in? Feel free to send us your ideas, or post a comment – this is a multi-author blog which longs for your contribution.
