Another season has ended, and I am beyond proud of everything we’ve done this year. In spite of a freak snow in October (the only bit of winter we saw all year!), we filled the house for Music From the Big Screen. Our Christmas Stories concert, with dancing sugarplums and dancing children, proved that our audience doesn’t just come for the cocoa, and the Celtic Arts Festival brought together an entire community to share music, culture and food. And last night’s Seikilos to U2 concert? A triumph – just a joy to sing such diverse music for such an appreciative crowd.
In addition to four great concerts, Vienna Choral Society had some other things to look back on with pride. Caroling during Historic Vienna’s Holiday Stroll, performing at the Mayor’s Reception, singing at local nursing homes. Our choir is as large as it’s been in years, and our audiences have broken box office records.
There are too many to thank for everything that happened this year, but it would be so rude not to try. So here goes. . . .
