To The Editor:
The Newtown Choral Society played to an enthusiastic crowd as we presented our spring concert, “The Music of the Night,” last Sunday at The Meeting House.
Presenting 14 examples of composers reflecting on the power of the night, Mary Andreotta directed us in music from Cole Porter to Coldplay. Susan Anthony-Klein, our accompanist, supported the choir with her usual professionalism and zeal, and presented an inspiring Chopin Nocturne.
We would like to thank The Newtown Bee for their support, but especially Nancy Crevier and Shannon Hicks for keeping who kept our name before the public
We thank our ticket takers Mark and Miles Aldrich. We thank Peter Andrew and Andrea von Amelunxen for hosting our after concert celebration at their gracious home. We also thank Clive Beddoe-Stephens and Chuck Magoulas for helping us move our musical equipment.
The choir would especially like to thank Nancy Dvorin for creating our page on Facebook and establishing our presence on Newtown Patch.
Finally, we must thank my husband, Kenneth. As usual, Kenneth lent his computer expertise, his patience and his muscle wherever it was needed.
The Newtown Choral Society, which is in its 28th year, will begin rehearsals for its December concert in September. We are a community choir and welcome new members from all area towns and have openings in all voices. If it is your time to raise your voice in song in a supportive environment, contact me at 426-3769 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss joining the Newtown Choral Society. We perform two concerts a year, sing at local events and weddings and practice Wednesday evenings at the Newtown Middle School.
