Singing for Knox United

On Sunday, June 3, 2012, we had the privilege of singing at the morning service at Knox United.  It was a very special service to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the commissioning of the United Church Women's group.  The Charter Members of the Knox UCW were give a rose and many had on hats from the era.  There were 15 of the original ladies present and all came down to the front to be recognized.

The hymns chosen were those sung most often 50 years ago as was the service format.  All in all it was a wonderful service.

We were so pleased to be able to share our music with Hallelujah, Over the Rainbow, Because We Believe, You Raise Me Up and we ended with the Parting Blessing.

We practise at Knox United every second week so being able to say thank you for their wonderful generosity was a pleasure.  Here is a picture taken by Norm from the balcony.  You will notice that our Embro Thistle Singers name got a wee bit changed on the screen but it didn't change our sound.  What a good looking and great sounding group.

I so wish we had a recording of those pieces. They were absolutely right on and then some. What a group of fabulous singers they are.
