I am passionate about music...I don't just hear it, I feel it in my heart.
I love everything from acappella to zydeco. Traditional bluegrass, African music, bagpipes...I love anything that isn't "mainstream" or what you typically find on a radio station. We have a fantastic public radio station in Alberta called CKUA - they play a lot of world music, which is fantastic. I often listen online at CKUA.com.
In addition to loving music to listen to, I also sing in a women's barbershop chorus and quartet - I sing bass, the lowest part. One of the things I've loved about this is that I had an opportunity perform on a CD with my chorus and quartet, many Christmas's ago. My quartet sang Marshmallow World on the CD and the chorus did a number of songs. It was so fun, and many of my friends that bought CD's tell me how much they've loved it.
So yes...music is a huge part of my life. I would be lost without it.
