Quite a bit of rain, hail, and high winds

… and we ended up having a dress rehearsal by candlelight, because the church lost power. It is somewhat magical to be in a darkened room, with faint light coming from the windows, watching the shadowy form of the director (who is squinting at a page of sheet music faintly lit by a flashlight). One really does listen for the piano cues.

One of the songs we’re singing is “In the Morning, Joy“. Another is a rendition of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s poem, “Afternoon on a Hill”. Lovely stuff, and it’s amazing how much of our program we have memorized.

    Recently read something about Edna St. Vincent Millay.. Her middle name is the hospital she was born in in NYC. So a piece of trivia for your day.

    Had a lovely time at the concert. So glad we came!!

      Interesting about EStVM… Thanks for coming to the concert and letting me know you had a good time. We had fun, although I think most of the choir has laryngitis now. 🙂
