River Singers weekend

This past weekend was pretty packed with singing. We had a River Singers concert in Grafton, VT in the "White Church" which began with a full run-through at 3:00p.m., followed by pot-luck supper at 5:30 and a concert at 7:00. It was a good concert - a very full house, live hall acoustically, spirit-filled singing. Both our guest conductor from Berea, KY, Dr. Kathy Bullock, and our regular leader, Mary Cay Brass, were in top form. There was a lot of energy and an enthusiastic response from the audience. It was a lot of time on my feet for me, still dealing with some knee discomfort, but I survived and it was fun. Then I did it all again on Sunday! Mary Cay's Greenfield Harmony group needed basses for their concert - 2-3 were sick and they don't have as many as River SIngers does to begin with. So three of us RS basses went down to Hadley, MA for the same schedule - 3-9pm. The venue was the Wesley Methodist Church, a new building and quite striking. We still got to church Sunday morning, In Guilford, and sang in the choir there. We also fit it a Mother's Day brunch at the Grange before going down to Massachusetts!
