As we have done all season, we will be collecting non-perishable foods for Loaves & Fishes at the door.

Hello Alumni!

Be sure to look around and explore the entire site. Let us know if you have pictures, memories, recordings, funny stories you’d like to share, or corrections, and we’ll try to upload them to the website for all to enjoy!

We welcome all Alumni to sing with us on the Sunday, 7 May 2017 concert in the Dalton Recital Hall at WMU. PDFs and recordings of the songs will be available here shortly. Feel free to attend any Monday night rehearsal at First Presbyterian Church from 7:00-9:15, but the three important ones are:

Monday 24 April

Monday 1 May

Saturday 6 May (10AM-2PM dress rehearsal at Dalton)

Sunday 7 May (concert at 4:00 at Dalton)

Please join us in singing these four pieces:

Tom will conduct Copland’s The Promise of Living (with Janlee and Helen accompanying!)

Cindy Hunter will conduct Gwyneth Walker’s “How Can I Keep From Singing.”

Hal Hobson will conduct his brand-new arrangements of songs from Ragtime.

I will conduct “We Are The Music Makers” by Patti Drennan as the finale.

We hope many of you will join us!
