Season Finale

The Spirituals Choir finished its 2013 season with a busy, busy weekend. Saturday afternoon we sang at the memorial celebration of the life of our late colleague, Bob Lee (1947–2013). What a celebration it was! Stories about Bob, poems for Bob, lots and lots of music, and lots and lots of food, all on a gloriously sunny September afternoon at the Ag Hall in West Tisbury.

Here’s a video of our performance. Professional it’s not, but here’s hoping it’ll give you a glimpse of just how special the event was.

On Sunday afternoon, we sang at the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs, as part of a benefit for the recreation program at Windemere, the island’s nursing home and rehabilitation facility. The program included the Windemere residents’ bell choir and chorus, as well as several musicians and ensembles that perform regularly at Windemere.

It’s been a full and exhilarating season for Jim Thomas and the Spirituals Choir. We’re already looking forward to 2014, which will be our 10th anniversary season.

This blog will continue through the fall, winter, and spring, featuring news about the choir and the U.S. Slave Song Project, and historical information that may be of interest. Thank you so much for your support!
