Time off

The chorus usually takes the summer off. We all do this as an “extra” and need time in the summer to rest, refresh, travel, garden, visit, get outside, and all of the rest of it. This year we made an exception and extended our season into July with a few performances.

It’s been great fun to find some new places to sing and return to some we’ve been to before. Following our big Homegrown Festival performance we’ve sung with sixth graders, at a donut shop, for residents at an assisted-living home, the Rhubarb Festival, and we have one last performance for the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica.

What’s really been remarkable for me is the level of quality music-making the singers are achieving. At many of these performances we’ve been only a small group, 12-15 singers rather than 30, yet whoever happens to make it sings their part beautifully and it all comes together. I’ll say it, I’m proud.

Enjoy what’s left of the summer, it slips away so quickly. Myself, I’m looking forward to some strawberries.

About Sing! A Women's Chorus

Music is learned through the oral tradition, allowing singers at all levels of experience to participate.
