Continuing with Dearing Wang’s video tutorials (aren’t these great?) on drawing mandalas, today we are looking at how to draw an image called 8 Phases of the Moon. This is a complex image so he has broken it down into 4 videos. I hope you enjoy them. At the bottom of the page you will find a link to a free pdf of the image that you can color.
Today I have both a mandala for you to color as well as an uplifting arrangement of “Let The River Run” by Carly Simon (arrangement by Craig Hella Johnson) and sung by the world renown choir, Conspirare.
According to Youtube this is: “Conspirare performance of “Let the River Run” by Carly Simon (arrangement by Craig Hella Johnson) from the PBS special “A Company of Voices: Conspirare in Concert,” a production of KLRU-TV in association with Conspirare. Conductor, Craig Hella Johnson. Recorded live at Dell Hall, Long Center for the Performing Arts, Austin, TX, October 2008. Available on DVD and Grammy®-nominated CD (Harmonia Mundi) at http://www.conspirare.org.”
I have the great good fortune to know Craig Hella Johnson and, as someone trained as a choral director, can honestly say he is a genius at arranging choral music and a world class choral conductor. I hope you explore more of Conspirare’s music on Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/user/ConspirareChoir/feed?spfreload=10.
Most of you don’t know this about me but earlier in my life I worked as a choral conductor. While illness has kept me from singing or conducting for many years, I still love choral music and thought from time to time I would share a piece with you along with a mandala.
