From the Decatur Choral Society President

What is your favorite piece of music which Opus 24 will sing at their November 26 concert? I always ask this of our Opus friends after every performance. By now most folks are prepared for this question and have something in mind which captured their imagination, brought back fond memories, or offered them a pleasant mental challenge. Also, many admit that they liked most or all of them, and that it is hard to narrow it down to just one.

To me, the strange thing is that rarely is one piece singled out above all the rest by a majority of those who attend our concert. Usually most of our songs are mentioned at least once. What a diversified audience we have, and what a range of choral music is sung by Opus 24!

All of the singers have their favorite pieces. Usually our choices are based on the pieces’ arrangements, our personal success at performing them correctly and artistically, and memories of times past. I won’t tell you what my favorite is yet. I first want to hear what you think. See you at the concert!
