    Finally finished our Christmas Nursing Home Concerts - and now . . .

    the weather is turning cold.

    We have been doing 2 - 3 concerts per week, and they have all fallen on beautiful riding days!! I guess that will teach us!!

    Yea, but bless you for doing it. Our church organizes caroling sessions where we take in a lot of nursing homes. Some of them look pretty cheery ... others ... pretty grim.

    With all that practice your group should be primed to flash mob one of the local malls.

    I'd be careful about the guy that is second from the right in the back row, smiling and wearing glasses. he looks sketchy to me

    Good job Denver, glad the season has been a good one for y'all! Merry Christmas to you and Mrs. Nora and all the XY Zingers.

    Right.

    Very sadly, the guy 3rd from the left died 3 days ago. Reverend Dr. Carl Mesnig. A great singer - did many solos. Performed in Europe, etc. He was 83, and was very active until a year ago - he had a stroke, from which he almost fully recovered, but in the past month he failed rapidly. We will be singing "It Is Well with My Soul" at his upcoming memorial service - at his request. Out group is getting smaller and smaller due to folks moving away and leaving for one reason or another. (We were not good enough for one guy ) We have had 8 great years. We will continue, but at a slower pace.

    What a great thing to carry out the holiday spirit!

    Maybe you should schedule a concert in the late afternoon so you can get a ride in beforehand.

    Denver if you still have the link to the snips of your group singing some, please post it again. I enjoyed listening to y'all singing so much. Sorry to read of the member's passing, singing at his memorial is probably the best way I can think of to honor him, God Speed Reverend Dr. Mesnig.

    Edit, never mind, I went to your page and found the listen link, doh!

    All of our singer's other life is built around morning performances, which means meeting at 8:30, warming up, traveling about 30 minutes, getting situated for a 10 or 10:30 performance, singing for 45 minutes and then lunch together.

    However, in the summer, I most always get a 1.5 - 2 hour ride before our 8:30 practice (at my home).

    The group I used to sing with, , The Queensmen of Toronto does the rounds of retirement and nursing homes between their concert schedule.
    Those people are always a very appreciative audience.

    Denver,
    I'm sure your concerts mean a great deal to your audience. It's so generous of you and your friends to give of yourselves. Keep it up; you will be awarded with better riding weather. Unfortunately, it will be in the spring

    I don't know Denver. I see you as a person who has to occasionally swap one passion in order to participate in another. This is not at all a bad thing. Kudos to you and your group for sharing an important gift with others.
