Alas, don't fret, says Michael Hawn, Director of the Master of Sacred Music Program at SMU: "It will take imagination and a willingness to break the ice," he tells the paper. "Singing is an act that naturally enhances a sense of community, whether it's 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game,' the national anthem or Christmas carols." Like this holiday favorite, perchance? --Robert Wilonsky
