What a marvelous performance that was on Sunday! There was so much spirit and such beautiful sound – thanks to both the quality of the singing and the wonderful acoustics! A number of audience members afterwards paid us the compliment of saying they heard every word, like we were one voice. Thank you Rene for your patience and perseverance in coaching us.
Engelman Hall is a gem of a concert hall and both the audience and the choir seemed to thrive in it – even with such a large crowd. However, we did see a few glitches, largely tied to the new venue and the sold-out house. The refreshments were gorgeous – our singer/home cooks outdid themselves- witnessed by the huge line during intermission. The accompaniment by Rene, Matt and Brian added its own lovely flair and the introductions really brought the audience into the music and mission of the Peace of Heart Choir.
This was only possible because of the incredibly hard work so many choir member put into making it all happen. From finding the concert hall and negotiating the contract, to designing and printing the elaborate program, to telling family and friends to come so that we sold out the hall – it all made a huge difference.
We always love to receive feedback on your experience at the Benefit and with the rest of your choir interactions.
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
