At the moment, I'm taking pictures, but I did start singing.

Mar 23... And makes us work.

Apr 20... Steve's Billboards... we're getting close, but he says we still need to sell tickets like mad!

May 4... I took these pics before we started.
May 6... Dress Rehearsal
May 6... I came to rehearsal with an empty camera (my SD chip was still attached to my computer)
so I failed to get pictures of our Soloists... who are fantastic. It was so hard, rehearsing all
these months without them. Obviously they've been practicing together and they're really good.
Maybe at the performance, I can get their pictures.
So, I went home after the chorale finished, got my SD chip, and came back while the orchetra
rehearsed symphony 104. (The cushy Elkhorn chairs were for the soloists.)
May 7... The stage awaits. Months of rehearsal for a less than one hour experience...
And then it's over.
May 7... We begin to gather in the choir room.
May 7... The soloists arive and I won't let them past my camera.
May 7... 25 years ago, these two started the chorale. I figured Sev might be
involved, but I never knew Eleanor was a co-conspirator.
May 7... I soloisti...
May 7... I realize they're a bit blurry, but I had to dash out of my seat
just as our perfomance was about to begin, so I was a bit rushed.
