Director's Notes

New Beginnings

New beginnings can be exciting! The first day of school, a new job, or maybe the birth of a child or grandchild. There's something about the freshness of beginning again!

Last night was one of those fresh starts for those of us in the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale. After our summer hiatus, it was back to singing with old friends, and may I say, a good number of new friends too! As the person who has the privilege of the upfront vantage point, I must tell you how excited I was to hear the sounds I heard in that rehearsal room. There was a vibrancy of tone that was hard to miss! It all bodes well for what's ahead this year!

Last night it was music that ranged from the sentimental I'll Be Home for Christmas to the amazingly poignant sounds of Lauridsen's Sure on This Shining Night. Wow! This is going to be fun!

Thanks singers! You made my evening!
