Boston City Singers is an organization very close to my heart (I sang with them as a kid back when they were the Dorchester Division of Youth pro Musica). It was SUCH a pleasure to get to photograph several of their Cambridge choruses yesterday afternoon and evening. I particularly loved watching the explanation for the younger children, using chairs (and how many people needed to sit on each!) to explain the rhythm of the song they were working on. Here are a few of my favorites from the afternoon:
You spoke, and I listened. Big changes are coming to Mira Whiting Photography this spring. I’m so excited to be announcing that going forward I will be working with a different pricing structure which I hope will serve you and your needs better. I will be switching to an all-inclusive model, where your session fee will include 20 fully-edited high-resolution images delivered digitally. You will have an online gallery, making it easier to share with far-flung friends and family.
Those are some pretty big changes, but what ISN’T changing? I will still:
- Be available to you for pre-session consultations so we can discuss exactly what you’re looking for, as well as wardrobe and location options.
- Be available to advise you on how to best print your images so you’ll be able to enjoy them for generations.
- Provide professional printing options, which use archival materials and will best-present the work I do.
- Always provide personalized service that fits YOUR family’s particular needs.
This week has been a tough one. There has been so much horrific divisiveness and lack of basic respect displayed all across our nation, and this evening’s shoot with Boston City Singers was a glorious antidote to all of that. This is an organization that prides itself on its diversity (on many axes) and inclusiveness, as well as a social justice mission of bringing high-level musical training to children who might not otherwise have access to that. Listening to children singing about celebration and joy and freedom was a wonderful balm.
Here are some highlights from my time with them today:
It was my pleasure yesterday to get the chance to photograph the Cambridge Kodály singing classes run by Boston City Singers. These classes, taught by Wendy Silverberg, who also directs the Cambridge Children’s Chorus (part of Boston City Singers), were full of energy, and enthusiasm, and it was just a joy to watch the children as they learned, and had fun doing it!
Here’s a small taste:
