Choral Concert Sings to a Full House
It is becoming a springtime tradition: a concert to celebrate singing; and once again the Parrsboro Citizen Choir was joined by the Parrsboro Elementary School Choir and the Women’s Barbershop Choir , The Cobequid Fun-Tones.
The Parrsboro Citizen Choir performed a variety of crowd pleasers, some slow, others more upbeat. They were accompanied by Rob Bentley on the keyboard, as well David Howe on the flute and Martin Langford on the tin whistle, beautifully enhancing a couple of songs.
The young students from the PRES delighted the audience with funny and well-rehearsed songs which brought laughter and applause, no doubt a lot of work went into it for the students and their teacher Elizabeth Estabrooks.
While some of the Funtones had been to the Hall for last year’s concert, this time the audience was treated to all 18 members performing barbershop tunes, gospel songs and other familiar songs like Anne Murray’s “Could I have this dance”. It was a sight for ears and eyes alike, great harmony, and their joy was obvious.
So this Choral Concert may be here to stay, to celebrate the joy of singing in the springtime of the year which was what this evening was all about.
