Playing this while all together is hard enough. Can’t imagine doing it as a virtual WWQ!

Well, this is a day late, I guess , but here is “Sunday” from one of my favorite musicals.

(Stick around to see where all the singers are located.)

Sunday, by the blue purple yellow red water
On the green purple yellow red grass
Let us pass through our perfect park
Pausing on a Sunday

By the cool blue triangular water
On the soft green elliptical grass
As we pass through arrangements of shadow
Toward the verticals of trees

By the blue purple yellow red water
On the green orange violet mass of the grass
In our perfect park

Made of flecks of light
And dark
And parasols
Bum bum bum bum bum bum
Bum bum bum

People strolling through the trees
Of a small suburban park
On an island in the river
On and ordinary Sunday

I go back and forth on whether it’s okay to post the silly when it comes to Covid-19. Thoughts?

But in any case, I did think they did a good job with this.

Update: Thanks to Tim J for the translation of the note included on the YouTube page:
The caption reads “Who is not cheered by hearing this immortal classic? Performed by KORK, each in their own home office. NRK now broadcasts concerts every evening from Monday to Friday on NRK2? . . . ”

That being said, seen, and heard, please, everyone, be safe. Stay home.

Does music have to be made by professional musicians to make a person cry?
