First concert

This past weekend was a very busy one for me and another 130 singers! The Longmont Chorale (the group I'm in) and the Laudamus Chorale from Fort Collins joined together for two fabulous concerts.

All the songs that were sung had a "water" theme to them. My two favorites were "Shall we gather at the river" (hymn/spiritual) and "The Seal Lullaby" by Eric Whitacre. Each chorale sang songs separately, then there were other groups who did one or two numbers each.

We heard wonderful comments from the friends we invited. It was so much fun, too! One of my friends, Leah, took the following picture for me with her amazing camera. Look at the huge choir! (Can you find me?:)

The following video is of the small group I'm in called the Chorale Singers. This is only one of our songs. I tried downloading the other one called "Ecco mormorar l'onde" by Monterverdi (a challenging Italian piece, by the way), but it didn't work. This one is of "Away from the Roll of the Sea" by Allister MacGillivray. Enjoy!

I wish Creston had something like this. It would be fun to be involved.
