OT - Busy Singing

In less than 3 years We have built the singing group I started March 2006 up to 10 performances of our special Christmas Program between 11/21/2008 and 12/21/2008 (see the following schedule). We now have 9 dedicated male a cappella singers.

It is great fun.

Here is our Christmas Show:

You guys are busy!

Our men's choir is off until January. We have a lot of church choir members and directors from churches and schools in our group. Our director figured that everyone is busy preparing Christmas music, so he decided to give us a break.

sounds great, Dnver!

We're doing Handel's Messiah next week, and Carmina Burana the week after. Talk about sacred and profane! It's been a wild season of rehearsals.
