Musical Monday - Celebration at Knox United Embro

The fall colours are simply gorgeous here this year.  This was but one of the glorious trees we saw as we drove to Knox United Church in Embro this morning to sing at their celebration of the newly renovated basement.
We have often told you about how wonderful the folks at Knox United have been to us in allowing us to use their beautiful space for rehearsals.  They are so generous as we know that many choirs constantly struggle to find a practice space with good acoustics, appropriate area and instruments for singing.  We have found all of that in this lovely old church.

 The old basement is where we started out back in 2010.  It was dark, damp and acoustically poor.  Well this morning we got to warm up in the new basement that is now bright, warm and much more open.  Then, up to the church we went.

It was a delight to be leading the music today.  We sang For the Beauty of the Earth. 
 Angels Among Us

 The Storm is Passing Over & Any Dream Will Do

Basses & Sopranos
Tenors & Altos
Kristy is back in great form at the piano keeping us all together.  We are so pleased that her injured foot is healing so well.

We are saying our thanks to our hosts at Knox United by giving them the money to tune and repair the piano downstairs in their lovely new basement.  Embro Thistle Singers are all about Song, Service & Fun.  We experience all of those using this wonderful facility.  Many thanks to our friends at Knox United.
