Singing at Silverado

Yesterday we had the privilege of singing for the fine folks at the Silverado Senior Living Center in Lake Zurich.






Earl, our associate director, did another fine job filling in as director...




...and our extraordinary accompanist, Tara, kept us in the correct key...



In addition to singing nine of our concert pieces, our treasurer, Glynda, performed a solo and later led us all in singing Christmas carols with the residents...



Thanks for inviting us, Silverado.  It was a rocking good time for all!

Barb and Bob again opened their lovely home for our annual after-concert party.






Kathy joins Barb and her granddaughter for a photo...



Then everyone gathered by the television to view the DVD of the concerts...



Merry Christmas to everyone!  See all you singers in January for rehearsals, and all you spectators at our Spring Concerts in May!

Concert Highlights Video

The concerts this weekend were very well attended, with nearly 300 in the audience over the two nights.  At the bottom of this post is a video featuring highlights from each song.


Alpine Church set the stage with lights in the background and a screen showing winter shots...


Our guest drummer extraordinaire, Mike, played drums and tambourine for our song "Betelehemu,"a Nigerian carol.  You can see him in action in the video below.




And our director, Sara, sang "All Is Well" and again brought the house down.  Her solo is also featured in the video below...
