Robert Shaw Quote

I saw this posted yesterday as the Robert Shaw Quote of the Day:

Great choral singing depends upon blending individual voices together, but there’s no magic or secrets, you have to have them sing the same pitch, with the same vowel at the same dynamic level, at the same time.

Might want to add: with no phone in their hands, without a test next hour, not right after a breakup, keeping their hands to themselves, holding the right piece in their hands, …….

What would you put on that list?
