Get out and sing!

'Tis the season of Christmas concerts. Of course you'll want to attend ours on December 10th. (Need details? Click here.) And be sure to plan to come caroling with us on Market Street after the concert. Singing along is so much fun! Here are some other opportunities to sing out this season...

The Garfield High School Orchestra Messiah Sing-a-long One of the best high school orchestras in America does this yearly event as a fundraiser for their program every year. The music is great, there are no divas (everybody sings everything) and they let you sing the Hallelujah chorus twice. Come out and support this great program on December 3rd.

Music Center of the Northwest Messiah Sing and Play-a-long Bring a food donation for FamilyWorks Food Bank as admission to the 25th annual "people's Messiah" on December 11th at St. John's Lutheran on Phinney.

Terrell's first choir

I promised in my member profile in this week's cyber-gazette to post a picture from my middle school choir. This picture appeared on the back of a recording my church choir did in about 1970. Yes, it was vinyl. No, I can't upload the recording because I don't own anything that can play vinyl. Can you find me??  -Terrell

OK, now I'm challenging the rest of you guys to pull out some vintage snaps of you singing or doing something else musical. Kate, I know we'd love to see a shot of you in your band uniform!

TMSS 2011 Annual Meeting

I'd say that Tuesday's annual meeting was a success by any standard. We accomplished all the business we needed to get done with a minimum of fuss (or boredom). We ate yummy pizza, tasty veggies and delicious desserts (kudos to the cooks and bakers!) The silent auction went off beautifully (again, kudos to everyone who donated services and everyone who bought them!) And we even got in a little rehearsal time. Props to Kate for keeping everything so organized and moving along and to all those who pitched in to help with set up and clean up and everything in between. Pictures from the evening are posted on Flickr but here are a couple to get you to click through.

Market Street Singers Holiday Free Concert

The Market Street Singers invite you to a performance of holiday joy, winter reflections, and some wicked seasonal comedy. This unconventional community choir plans to leave no aspect of the season uncovered. After the concert at Ballard First Lutheran Church, you'll find "the Singers" caroling around downtown Ballard. Admission is free, but contributions are always gratefully accepted.
Holiday Joy To Go!
Saturday, December 10 at 7:00 pm
Ballard First Lutheran Church, 2006 NW 65th St
(corner of 20th and 65th, across the street from Smokin’ Pete's BBQ)


This concert is presented in conjunction with the Ballard Artwalk, a fabulous and fun Ballard tradition, which we encourage you explore before and after the performance.

Very belated picnic pics

I realized recently that I never got around to posting the small number of pictures I took at the picnic this summer. I just added them to our Flickr group so you can go see us shivering at Golden Gardens in July. Here's one to get you started. I love the expressions on these faces...

Future performance suggestion?

As I promised the board, I plan to post occasional bits or fun as well as news about the choir. This video has been making the rounds lately after being picked up by Once you watch it (it is pretty funny) be sure to click through to and read the translation of the lyrics and the comentary about Chinese culture. So interesting!
