First Entry

This blog and it's entries are dedicated to our esteemed conductor and director, Paul D. Weber, who cannot be with us on this tour. We will record events, tour news stories (the good ones), and other interesting happenings so that Dr. Weber can read about what's going on and be connected to us even in his absence.
Our first tour spot is to Salisbury, NC. We begin at St. John's Lutheran by singing and leading the people of that parish in worship. We will be premiering Dr. Weber's piece, Come Let Us Sing, which is dedicated to one of the members of that parish. Other pieces we will be performing include: Gustav Holst's Nunc Dimittis, Mendelssohn's Heilig, Palestrina's Sicut Cervus and others.
We got to sing for an Evening Prayer service today that was led by hymn-writer, John Bell. The choir rose to the occasion and sang very well. People really enjoyed our offering of music, however, the space presented some challenges. The choir area was pretty confining, but the singers managed to sing out and sing well.
Dr. Weber means a lot to us and we hope to honor his work by singing very well and being, as he would say, intelligent singers. We wish you could be with us on this tour, Dr. Weber, but since you can't, stay in touch through this blog. We will update as much as we can! We will look forward to seeing our conductor as soon as he is well! Stay tuned--
