Our church choirs have a reputation.
(That's kind of cool....)
This Sunday we're singing at the concert for the local symphony.
At work the other day, I heard a commercial for us. On a 50,000-watt radio station. On one of their most-listened-to talk-shows. A commercial for us. I was excited! Oh my goodness -- you can buy tickets for the concert on Ticketmaster. To me, that's where you get tickets for Toby Keith or Kenny Chesney or Michael Buble. One of my co-workers said, "I have NEVER seen you nearly so pumped about ANYthing." No foolin'!
This is going to be fun.
If you're local and want to attend, it's 3:00 on Sunday at Hamilton Fine Arts Center (at the high school). Information is available at the symphony's website. The children's choirs are singing a couple of songs without the adults, and I don't know what those pieces are. The adults (or adults with the kids) are singing:
Once in Royal David's City (Mann/Willcocks/Vierrege)
Up, Good Christen Folk
Praise God the Lord, Ye Sons of Men (Hugo Distler)
Jesus Christ, the Apple Tree
Your Little Ones, Dear Lord, Are We (David Cherwien)
Silent Night (Hal Hopson)
See, in Yonder Manger Low (Keith Veirrege)
