Author Stacy Horn on Her Book, Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others
Why do we sing? For Stacy Horn, singing in a community choir—the Choral Society of Grace Church in New York—is the one thing in her life that never fails to take her to a transcendent place and remind her that everything good is possible. In her memoir, Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others, Horn relates her funny and profound experiences as a choir member. She treats us to an eclectic history of group singing and the music that moves us, whether we're hearing it for the first time or the hundredth; the dramatic stories of conductors and composers; and discoveries from the new science of singing, including the remarkable physical benefits of song.
