The Sea Notes Choral Society says ‘Thank you’ to all of its spring concert attendees.
The director and members appreciated those Saturday night attendees who gave up college basketball to come and hear us sing. Sunday’s attendance came very close to a “full house”. Our director Marie-Pierre Fletcher chose the theme “That’s What Friends Are For” to share her love of music with her new friends in the USA. She immigrated to the United States from Luxembourg just three years ago. The concert goers enjoyed songs dealing with friends or friendships. The men sang the beautiful ballad “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” while the ladies serenaded the audience with “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” including an opening by “Marilyn Monroe” with her suitors and French duelists. The audience was treated to a six-hand piano piece performed by the concert pianist Jane Boberg, Suzi Linton also a chorus pianist and director Marie–Pierre Fletcher. The chorus sang a song called “Dogs” while two friendly “dogs” were roaming the auditorium and photos of chorus members’ dogs were displayed on the stage screen. “Grease” was a big hit with the audience followed by the closing number “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. The chorus performed an encore which was a compilation of some of the concert songs.
The chorus wishes to thank its Friends of Sea Notes, its Business Supporters and Business Sponsor for making it possible to perform two concerts three times a year. The choral society also thanks its loyal concert attendees for their donations. Your continued support of Sea Notes is truly appreciated!
