In Awe

Last night Itasca Community Chorus rehearsed with the baritone and soprano soloists Loren Squires and Susan Saxhaug Loeffler.  The chorus was "in awe" to the point where Director Sam Evans first said, "Don't clap now" only moments later to say "You can clap now!"

Since Day 1 the chorus has been in awe of what accompanist Stuart Boehr does on the piano, but last night sent us out the door still singing.  Week by week the sections have gained in their ability to produce music some thought inaccessible to us.  Last night section leader Lenora Evans commented, "That was easy!" Until April 26th we will all work on that tricky timing or the unusual interval, but the key words here are "We will ALL work!"  And happily so. . .

Posters are out; tickets are on sale from choir members at $10 per adult so please reserve Sunday, April 26th on your calendar.  And allow a bit of extra time because this time we're performing Ralph Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem followed by hits from Broadway on the historic stage in Greenway at 4:00 pm.  Student, active military, and veteran tickets are free. Reception follows.
