Weekly Update, Thursday Nov. 21

Gospel Concert Report

What a great Gospel Concert. I had several people speak with me after the performance and said that this was the best concert we had done. The variety of performers was also praised. Thank you to everyone who organized this event and to each and every performer. The preliminary financial results are also good. Nearly $6,000 was raised, which will allow His Hands to receive a check for over $4,000. The final amounts are still to be determined.

There will be no rehearsal November 28, so you can celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Thursday, June 23 will be a special night dedicated to inviting men of all ages to experience the excitement and fun of four-part men’s harmony.

We’ll show you what happens in a rehearsal, learn a tag to sing in a small group, and see a demonstration of how we learn our music. If transportation is an issue, we’ll pick you up!
