Love this warmer weather, but ... hope we don't have to pay for it later!
This video of Prarie Voices singing Four Strong Winds is just outstanding. The ensemble is so tight and so musical.
Another great rehearsal this week. On our way with the entire program for the concert. I am just finishing the recordings this week (I think or should I say I hope). Then I'll just retire and go golfing while you learn your parts and meet you in April - (Ha! Ha! Ha! sorry that's a recurring dream I have).
Thank you all for your focus at rehearsal. It is very difficult for some people to hear when there is a lot of surface noise, so when we all are a little quieter, it really helps them. As we get older, our hearing may not be as good and as a result when some of us think we are whispering quietly, we aren't.
For those who were not able to join us this week, here's what you can look at to get caught up.
