Tomorrow night the combined choirs at Amy's high school will perform Robert Ray's "Gospel Mass." It's going to be a "proud mom moment" for me because Amy has one of the many solos during the piece. Competition was fierce, and she was proud to get the part she really wanted most. The choir director does "Gospel Mass" only every three years, so this is the only opportunity in Amy's high school career for her to participate. And yes, it's a public high school ... but this is considered a modern-day masterwork.
