Music does bring people together.
It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same.
– John Denver
No Spring Concert for the HHCS
February 1 was the trigger date for the decision concerning our spring concert. Unfortunately, we still find ourselves and our community in a precarious and unsettled situation with the COVID-19 virus. Although some of us, and you, have received the vaccine it is still unsafe for us to gather to rehearse and for you to attend an in-person concert. So, the HHCS Board has made the decision to cancel our April concert. A great disappointment but a decision we feel is in the best interest of all involved.
We are tentatively holding dates for a Memorial Day weekend outdoor presentation of some sort. There are many things to consider and many details to be sorted out. Please check back here for updates and we’ll let you know when and if that performance looks feasible.
We leave you with a video link to the Gene Scheer anthem you may have heard at the Presidential Inauguration or at Justice Ginsberg’s memorial service. American Anthem is performed here by soprano Denyce Graves. It is a beautiful text set to a lovely tune and one of the Choral Society’s favorite pieces to perform for our Memorial Day concerts. Stay well and we hope to see you soon.
