This year, for the first time, I got involved in a community chorus production of a Christmas Cantata. One of the members of the Norwood church is the director. It was awkward to say no.

Every Sunday evening for the past couple months I've been going to choir practice. The two performances are happening this weekend.

I confess to having a little bit of a bad attitude about these things. Probably because I've been to so many poor performances over the years that I don't want to subject others to the same. But here I am.

The choir is 24 voices, and we're accompanied by a 20 piece orchestra, so as small-town community chorus performances go, it's a pretty big deal.

There are a few people at the performances who are trying to get recordings. If any of them come out and are posted online, I'll post links when they become available.
