An Afternoon of Music

Today was our Ladies Choir Christmas concert. This choir was formed in 2008, so this was our ninth Christmas concert. (We're older than I thought, I would have said our eighth!) Our numbers are down a bit this year for various reasons, we  are currently about 75 members. I can't tell you what a thrill it is to sing with this group of talented dedicated ladies. I'm sure all choir members would agree that we enjoy the concert just as much as the audience does, maybe even more! Our director Peter Steeves and accompaniest Julie Maston go above and beyond to make us the best we can be. We owe them such huge thanks!!
Here are a few photos from today. Thanks and photo credits to Larry Dickinson and  Steve Rogers of My New Brunswick who stopped in to take some random shots while we were warming up. (You can see a few more photos on their site.) If you are a local reader, you may see a face or two here that you recognize...
Yep! That's us!

Altos with Julie who sadly got cut in half! Sorry Julie!

Do we sound better from the side?
I cherish my time with this group of ladies each week, they are not only good friends, they are family. Music is good for the soul and the mind.. and the heart! Thanks ladies!  🎶

Peace, 
Linda

I found you in there in the third picture, didn't I? Singing is a joy to be thankful for. I can't carry a tune for nuthin' but I love to sing and hummmm all the time. Nice pics of your group.

Oh I would love to see a video clip! What joy to sing together this way. Are you all finished for another year or will there be an Easter cantata?

It's always fun to look at the photo to see some friends. And there's nothing like Christmas Music to get in the spirit! Wonderful!

What a concert! Wonderful to rehearse every week, and wonderful to present the concert. Love singing with you, Linda, even though I am a Second Soprano! Jeanne Kaye

I'm glad your concert was a success. That is a really large choir! I'm sure you have loads of fun. Peter is an excellent director.
