Re: [KWChoir] After Pennsic
- Hi folks!I'm wading through piles of stuff at work, as I imagine most of you are, so this will have to be brief, but I want to thank you all again for a wonderful experience directing the Pennsic Choir. Your hard work made for a great concert!As many of you know, my husband passed away last fall. I almost decided to step aside from directing the Pennsic Choir because I knew this would be a difficult Pennsic for me. I am so glad I didn't. It was a tremendous lift, a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I would not have missed for the world, directing such a talented and dedicated group of singers. I appreciate your patience and energy, and I hope everyone enjoyed the concert as much as I did!I've been told that a video and two audio recordings of the concert will be forthcoming. As soon as they become available, I'll let people know.Thanks again. You all MADE my Pennsic!Arianna of WynthropeDirector, Pennsic Choir 35

- Michel and I also had an absolutely wonderful time singing with the Known World Choir this year. Each day since Thursday we've been saying to each other, "I miss choir!"
Getting to sing my favorite, "Gentil Senora Mia", was truly the highlight of my Pennsic. All of the songs were challenging and fun, and did we perform them successfully or what?! And the internal music continues yet... Every so often one of us will say something like, "I keep thinking about 'Dindirin' and get a response like "I know what you mean, only with me it's 'Otro Tal' now...this morning it was 'Sitientes'..." We want to hold on to whatever we can of this happy experience. If there is a CD of our performance, we will surely want a copy.
Thank you, Mistress Arianna, for choosing such good pieces and preparing us so well!

Greetings to all of you from sunny Caid. Having just returned from Pennsic, that wonderful concert is still fresh in my mind. I snuck away from Caidan dinner court as quickly as possible, arrived just before Wohlgemut played, and got to listen to the rest of the singing-- and it was truly wonderful. My thanks to everyone who worked so hard to present that music; your efforts were well-rewarded.
