In a short time…

In just a couple of weeks, we’ll be closing up the chorus with our big farewell concert, followed by our annual singers-only end of year potluck. Feels a bit like graduation for me. It’s so hard to believe that this effort, this community, this music, this way I spend my time, won’t be anymore. Much will linger; our relationships with each other cannot be undone. Truly, the biggest thing I will miss is sitting in a room with these women week after week.

Despite the hectic pace of getting ready for our concert, there are small moments where I can feel the music and anticipate the emotion of performing. We do have such a beautiful thing. I love the sound of these voices, I love the songs we sing, I love the women who keep me company and bring my music from inside my head into the real world. And the singers do so well. I often feel a rush of awe and pride at just how good they sound.

Please come to hear our Farewell Concert, 7pm, June 8 at Weber Music Hall. Until then, cheer yourself up by watching our music video.

About Sing! A Women's Chorus

Founded in 1999 by director Mags David, Sing! A Women’s Chorus is based in the Duluth Public Schools Community Education program. This ensemble is open to all registrants. Music is learned through the oral tradition, allowing singers at all levels of experience to participate. We sing traditional music from the U.S., Europe, and West Africa, and original songs written for the chorus by Mags David.
