Last Choir Rehearsal and Baum Concert!

Our Baum Concert last weekend was wonderful! Thank you to everyone who came!
Sadly, this was our last concert with our beloved Seniors, and we will be so sad to see them go!




Our very last Choirbee of the Week was our super conductor, David!



Stay tuned for more updates from the end of the year!

Hildegard of Bingen, let's hear some free singin'...

The frogs are hopping,
the rain's coming down,
the grass is much greener,
there are flowers in town.

Marathon Monday has passed in a flash
soon it will be Ruhlman
and then the end of year bash.

Amid all the midterms and festivities though,
there's another event
-one we all know.

It's the annual Baum concert
-you should all come out
to listen to us sing
and then to scream and shout.

DC-UVA-and back home!

We've made it back to Wellesley! The last few days of our tour flew by! We traveled to DC where we met and sang for alumni, and then spent some time exploring the city!
Choirbees dressed to the nines for our fancy dinner with the alums!

We were also lucky enough to take a master class with Edward Maclary at the University of Maryland, and to sing at Emma R.'s high school! We were all blown away by the skill of the Walt Whitman High School choir!
After DC we journey to Virginia, to sing Ralph Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem  with the Virginia Men's Glee Club!
Along the way, we made a stop at Pinkadilly Tea, for a classy tea party!



Even Jonathan donned a fancy hat!
Our collaboration with UVA was fabulous, and we enjoyed reuniting with the friends we made in the fall, and revisiting the gorgeous Dona Nobis Pacem!

We headed home on Sunday, and have spent the past couple days sleeping, catching up on homework, and wishing we were still on tour!
Many thanks to everyone who came to our concerts!
Our next event will be our singing 5k on April 12! Register at http://bit.ly/1pP72nd

Durham and Volunteer work!

Yesterday we arrived in Durham! After some time for lunch and exploring, we split up into groups to volunteer. Two groups went to thrift stores to help sort and organize clothes, and one group went to the Genesis Home, to decorate and clean the space and design posters and bulletin boards! 






Our concert that night was a benefit concert for the Genesis Home, and it was made all the more meaningful by the volunteer work we performed earlier in the day! 

One particular treat at our concert was the number of alums that showed up to support the Genesis Home and our choir! The stage was crowded as we all sang the Alma Mater together!

Now we are off to DC to meet and sing for even more alums! On our way we made a quick stop at Duke to visit their beautiful chapel!
