VS Performance at Silverado

For the third year, the Village Singers were invited to perform at Silverado, a memory-care facility. It is always a privilege and a pleasure to perform for these folks! As usual, we sang a number of songs from our recent Christmas Concert and then another half dozen carols as a sing-a-long with the residents. It is always heartwarming to watch their faces light up and hear as their voices join ours in the familiar carols during the sing-a-long. No matter what memory issues they are struggling with, most still recall and cherish the songs and enthusiastically belt them out along with the choir! The music begins around the 20 second mark.    (Thanks to Cheryl for the video footage.)

Traditional Post-concert Party at Barb's


Our hostess, Barb...


























Christmas Concert 2016



Here's a video with snippets of each song -- the entire concert in 11 minutes!







Our very special guest at the concert was Santa Claus who visited with audience members and made an resounding appearance in the concert as "The Man with the Bag."




Another guest (who snuck in) was Mr. Grinch, but he was unsuccessful at stealing Christmas!




Here are a few photos from longtime member, Cheryl...








Here are our musicians...

For the first time, we held a silent auction of 40+ themed baskets, which was very well received...
