Wednesday, January 18, 2017


Rehearsals with all the choirs got off to a great start last night!

We started the amazing and rewarding rehearsals with Apprentice Choir singing such a beautiful tone, then Advanced Choir proving that they are able to learn fast and do more difficult music, and finally, with Concert Choir even bringing tears to the eyes of parents as they sang, My Hearts in the Highlands! Premier Singers gained two very good members, and smoked the sight-reading rehearsal!

We are so excited about this term!

To the Wonderful Singers of Young Artists!

Your performance Saturday evening was so thrilling! I was very concerned because we didn't have the safety factor built in on some songs, but the Lord blessed our efforts and you sounded and looked and acted like angels!

Everyone enjoyed your performance very much! All the announcers did a magnificent job as did the soloists.

Even though Apprentice Choir singers were very sleepy because of the long wait to sing, their discipline was perfect and they sang beautifully!

Advanced Choir, you sang such a rich full sound and your faces were so animated! We were rather blown away by how much you have accomplished! Way to go!

Concert Choir and Premier Singers, you sang magnificently! ;) We were so pleased and proud of you! Premier, you were just "spot on!" Everything felt solid and sure and beautiful! Concert Choir, you had so many in the audience in tears as you  sang The Hands That First Held Mary's Child.  It will be remembered as your masterpiece, though Nathan commented again about the beauty of Candlight Carol (especially the first part where you knew both the song and the story :). It made him weep.

Audience members loved hearing the choir sound grow on the finale! It was amazing to them! And I loved how you sang, Silent Night, to so sweetly complete the concert. There was just a beautiful feeling! Thank you for your adaptability!

Not only were we pleased with your performances, but we were pleased with your discipline and decorum as audience members. You were a wonderful audience for each other!

We will see you in January!

Auditions are January 10th from 5-8 pm. Invite more of your talented friends to come!

Rehearsals begin January 17th! Can't wait!!!!

We love you!
