After performing our 9/11 commemoration concert at Central Park, some of us took the #1 train up to Insomnia Cookies on 110thStreet. We were to get a percentage of the day's profits, so we encouraged everyone in the street to buy cookies. There were only ten or eleven of us, but we held our own singing on the darkening sidewalk outside the cookie store. During a reprise of “Aquarius,” a passer-by, inspired by Gary’s singing in tongues, let her soul out through dancing. “Faster!” she kept saying to the choir as she twirled. “Faster!” Then she danced over to Rene and said “Faster!” to him. When we didn’t change tempo, she danced off down the sidewalk and was gone. When we finished singing, Anthony’s mom passed around a box of Insomnia Cookies that she had just bought. Thanks, Jeanette!
Tomorrow’s rehearsal may be the official beginning of the season, but in facet we have already begun.

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.
