Saturday afternoon, June 15th a smaller group of choir members gathered at Rivington House, a home for AIDS patients, where we sang in the penthouse, a very nice venue. Here our audience was smaller, but the concert was just as beautiful.
The three sopranos held their own wonderfully and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the songs and joined us in the sing-alongs. We did rousing renditions of New York/ New York, Feeling Groovy, Aquarius, Siyahamba, and Stand by Me, along with a gentler Die Gedanken and the addition of Tumbalalaika. We ended with Give Me Hope and Let There be Peace on Earth to much appreciation from the audience. We could all feel what a lovely gift music is for folks who are struggling.

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.
