The Spirit Room seeks an image of St. Cecilia

Postby mamasaid » Tue Jun 21, 2005 10:26 pm

Madi here from the Spirit Room, aka BRC Performance Center.

So, I had an idea this morning while riding my bike over the GG bridge. I sing in this choir and we are performing Benjamin Britten's Blessed Cecilia, an homage to the patron saint of music. I am moved by this work, being the musician that I am.

At the same time, I am formulating ideas for The Spirit Room, BRC's Performance center where live music will reign. We are presenting a whole new set of musical experiences for your listening pleasure.

But wouldn't it be cool to have the Blessed St. Cecilia grace us with her presence? A shrine in her name?

So, I am looking for an artist who might like to create a backdrop, or a large scale painting, or some sort of rendering of her, with which to honor and evoke her presence. I am open to ideas, if this sort of thing interests you.
There will already be a shrine in the house, I am thinking she would preside over the whole room somehow...

your thoughts??

When you said this I immediately thought of the Andrew Sisters' song... (And NO, I'm NOT that old!!!)

Found these for inspiration, maybe an idea or 2...

I'd like to see her in a more powerful and esteemed position, as opposed to her tomb.!! but thanks for the link...

Still hoping to find someone to create an image of her likeness at this blessed space...
