The Cairo Chorale Society is a haven for those seeking music’s Universal praise. Truly feeling its connection to healing, music is the voice of heaven. A balance of movement for crystal-like imagery, voices of sound become moving jewels from the depths of obsidian-colored wombs. When music speaks, her vibrations spread to imaginable galaxies. Creating paintings through her style of dancing, the Earth welcomes blessings sent her way.

As the world is in a state of chaos, the Spirit of music becomes more important in her revelation. Her presentation to humanity as a vesicle of healing. . .a sound of love. Egypt knows, all too well, the aesthetics of this thing called. . .music. It’s a spiritual aspect. It’s artistic personality. She is a life of her own. A revelation of hidden treasures. A director into one’s connection into the complexity, and wonder, of Universal mystery and delight.

At the American University in Cairo, the Cairo Chorale Society, under the leadership of Dr. John Baboukis, represents one of those havens. . .heavensI should add. Every Tuesday, their connection to the Universe is tested.

How do pitches, timbers, and rhythms match those of Universal patterns, in order to reflect the best in repertoire, that has been selected for the performance?

What does Dr. Baboukis hear when myriad voices come together to marry a note? A selected rhythm? And is the Cairo Chorale Society on a spiritual journey to connecting Earth’s voices to the heavens?

I think so. And of course, as the sound of the CCS elevates, and surrounds herself, more into Universal mystery; holistic energy of nourishing abundance will elevate the choir into heaven’s domain.

After all, a musical ambassador of the American University in Cairo, the Cairo Chorale Society, has a lengthy story of its own. Some have transitioned on. Members have come and gone. And new talents have emerged, in order to continue the cycle of nourishment, provided by this vivacious group!

Yet, what remains, is the Cairo Chorale Society as a musical gift to the city. Blessings from the American University in Cairo.

Music is the Soul of the heavens. She is always changing. Always turning. Always moving. Her voice keeps the Universe in an ongoing dance. These are the beauties of her persona. She is, after all, a multi-talented artist. And she uses her talents in bringing balance and beauty to humanity.

One can only wonder how sounds of the Cairo Chorale Society are reflected in the heavens. What patterns, colors, and images are painted when they sing? How are they mirrored in stellar constellations? And what vibrations are felt when angelic voices of Earthly spheres are ecstatic in performing this wonder, called. . .music?!

Choir culture is an ongoing journey. A movement, where voices begin a spiritual path of finding alignment with each other. How do they complement each other, and highlight hidden colors, not seen, prior to? A new combustion of energy is produced when differing voices become air-like attachments of each other. The heavens become excited in feeling, different illuminations within her domain. The energetic aesthetics produced when music reaches the heavens; reflecting the Soul, Spirit, and level of vivaciousness within a choir. It is also a presentation and depiction of the different spiritual coloration of each member.

Further mystery, is how this musical painting looks when it comes together. Once the songs have been mastered, and the performance is ready, the Universe is pleased with her reflection. She is nourished by the different creations, or interpretations, in the sound of her voice.

When Earth sings praises, humanity becomes healed!

As the Cairo Chorale Society at the American University in Cairo progresses, and elevates its journey towards the Universal heavens, one can only imagine the infinite possibilities and performances. Crafted and painted, for music lovers, delight. It is a joyous sight, and sound, in seeing the light-up of AUC Gardens.

The beauty of her majesty. The richness and endless vocals of her speech. She is a wonder to hear, and a sight to read. Located in a city (and country) of magic and mystique, CCS is in a powerful position to test just how vast one can be immersed in greatness.

That’s the mystery of angels, who sing. . .in heaven’s skies.
