We followed the September Concert and their spectacular version of Give Us Hope, which featured a large group of kids dancing in front of the chorus. We sang on the other side of the monument, facing benches and trees, not out toward Columbus Circle.
Our audience was smaller than that for the September Concert, but very personal, with many singing and clapping along to Blowin' in the Wind, Down By the Riverside and Od Yavo. René’s pitch instrument was very soft.
We couldn’t all hear it, so he walked up and down the row giving us our note, and we passed it on--like a game of telephone. Everyone was in high spirits, and we sounded great. René even walked into the audience on the sing-alongs, to see how we sounded from the gallery, and he was very pleased. After we finished, more than a few people came up to us to tell us how much they enjoyed it.
-Peace of Heart Member and Sign-up Coordinator
It has become a tradition for a member of POHC to do a post-concert write-up. It started when our Sign-up Coordinator began emailing her summaries to the other members in order to entice newer members to sign-up to sing at community concerts held early in the season. It didn't take long for Concert Write-ups to become greatly anticipated amongst our members, so we share them here in hopes that you'll join us at a future concert.
