The Concert

I've been working with my choir since September on the songs for our annual Holiday concert.  When we started in September, it was a little weird to be singing Christmas Carols and such, especially when the weather was still so warm.  We've been practicing phrases such as

 Jing, Jing, Jing, Jing-a-ling-a-ling.  and jing-a-ling-ling-a-ring-a-jing-jing

Try saying them fast and on key.  Every week, we would work in just those parts of the songs that had those phrases in them.  But it paid off.  I was able to sing most of that song without looking at my music.  I could watch the director, which he wanted!

Here are a couple of songs, thanks to Jakes in the audience recording.  Sorry for the shak-y camera action.

The Virgin Mary Had A Baby Boy

And Another One.....

Dong Dong Merrily on High
written for 4-hand piano
Our accompanists are FABULOUS!

The audience was a little sparse thanks to Old Man Winter pretending to bring snow to us.  There was no snow but lots of rain.  Hopefully the second concert will have many more people for us to entertain!


  1. nice...hey you rocked it....and i remember when you first started singing with them....we had freezing rain and sleet yesterday but a nice and mild day today....

  2. You all sounded really beautiful! Good for you on not really having to look at your music!
