My sweet, fun choir of elders (JP Jubilee) is taking a big step this December, performing with a local community orchestra. We’ve learned the Hallelujah chorus and there are many other sweet holiday pieces on the program, which will be conducted by Geneviève Leclair. I am spitting proud of my “kids”. I have relented in my taboo of women tenors–with 72 members and only 11 men, I wisely chose to let our “lady baritones” have their day. Well, lady tenors. Post-menopausal and rarin’ to sing!
All proceeds of this concert go to support our program, which is a free class and meets at our local library.
It’s time to start again–classes, lessons, and the “Birthday of the World”. Come sing, learn, and have fun in Boston and Cambridge. Or travel to Cape Cod for the High Holidays where no one needs a ticket to take a seat…Am HaYam meets in Orleans and I’m cantor, conductor and pianist…
This is late notice, but hey, it’s good to know at any time that elders can learn to do hip-hop…and I will do a cameo solo in Deborah Henson-Conant’s song about the library, in honor of our return to the newly renovated branch library where we have met since we started in 2013. Lots of good fun, and short, too!
