It was a wonderful experience to sing the Faure Requiem and the other pieces. The orchestra members really loved the music too! The reception by Jill Trick and her mom, Laura Trick, was beautiful with fresh flowers from Jill’s garden and wonderful food. Pat Murkland distributed our programs and actually tweeted about the concert from her post. Accompanst Joan Frost came through like a champ, playing the organ part in the Requiem and accompanying the rest of the choral pieces.
The audience was smaller than usual; it happened that the funeral for one of Banning’s leading citizens, Bud Mathewson, was that day as well.
