FHCA CHRISTMAS CONCERT COMMENTS
The choir actually sounds much better than I thought! (You can't really hear them properly from the piano, of course.) I like that the recording is "Highlights" -- gives a good idea of what they did. They, and Alfred, can be very proud of what they accomplished in such a short time. Hopefully this will encourage many people to re-enlist for the Spring.
The Concert was lovely. I really liked the new words for Siyahamba. Very good, rhythmically. Did you hear me singing along?
I heard from several people some were there and others were unable to attend because of previous commitments. They all said the Christmas concert was one of the best they had been to in the area for a couple of years they loved the sing along portion. My own husband said he really enjoyed it and that is saying a lot because he normally is not overly impressed when he has to attend any function, he is a home body. I know of three office Christmas parties for the families to visit Santa on Sunday late afternoon and early evening one being Grand River Hospital. I was asked if there was another performance because they had family coming in from out of town in December and they thought it would be nice to see it again with family. I thought that was a nice complement to the choir.
My husband and I are always amazed how well this choir sings after only twelve rehearsals. Keep up the good work!
I was happy to be playing the organ in my first concert that included a band! I agree with the comments that for a new choir, everyone did a good job. The repertoire was challenging for a new choir to learn in a short time if you ask me. The concert brought joy and life too many in the audience, including my guests, who came from Toronto. I feel accomplished and proud to be a part of the performance!
Thank you for a spirited evening of music and celebration at the recent concert event. Choirs, such as the FHCA group, that are open to everyone's participation play a valuable role in fostering a sense of community and well being. This was evident in the great turn out and atmosphere that the music making generated. The enthusiasm of the singers and conductor was directly communicated to the audience that created an uplifting communal experience for all. Thanks for sharing the joy of singing.
Enjoyed the Christmas Concert last night....great turnout....wanted to say hello but couldn't get to you. You were an excellent host as always.... Cheers and Merry Christmas and everything great in the new year.
Our family will certainly be there to celebrate Canadaís 150th birthday with your choir. I saw Alfred Kunzís Canada Song at The Centre in the Square and found it very moving. The audience and singers are in for a real treat!
Last nightís performance, you and your choir performed not only A taste (appetizer) of Christmas itís a FULL course meal! Itís not easy to conduct a choir over 30, 40 people, different age, back ground to sing so many songs one night. Itís a success!!
My friend and I had a wonderful night. We enjoyed very much! The reason caused the success is you have a group of singers who looked at the Conductor. You guys communicated so well. What I enjoyed most was their body, voice expression which made
the songs alive. You can picture it! Especially the light hearted songs such as The Marvelous Toy, Hot Chocolate (really HOT J), Jingle Bells.
Great performance at your 2016 Concert. We enjoyed every piece you sung with devotion and sincerity of the music sung. The choir showed enthusiasm and grace with humorous comments from Alfred. It has been 26 years I spent with Alf and his concerts sure draw the crowds. It was a privilege to be present to hear music I have sung in the past. Looking forward to your next Concert with choir and musical guests.
I have learned so much over these last two concerts about choir singing. Thank You!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful concert at Calvin Church last night, it was excellent. we have really enjoyed being a part of the choir for the last 3 sessions and look forward to many more. I thought last nights performance was wonderful and very well received by the full house attendance we had. A full house in spite of the Grey cup game. That says it all. We had friends in attendance who thoroughly enjoyed the music, the sing along carols and the humour. They had a grand time. Thank you so much for your vision and for sharing your musical knowledge with everyone.
What a great concert, everyone seemed to having a great time. Loved the marvelous toy.
Great variety of music. Loved singing along!
Looking forward to your celebration of Canadaís 150th! Hope you are doing your Canada Song!
