Choir Concert Tonight

Liz, Anna and Shelagh at their last concert together, in 2005

Tonight is the 15th anniversary concert of the Leelanau Children's Choir and Youth Ensemble, at 7 pm at the Northport Community Arts Center.

Both present singers and alumni are singing, so I get to hear all three of my daughters sing together on stage once again. I have been doing double duty this week, shuttling kids back and forth to rehearsal, ironing and fixing costumes in the wings while they sing, and then putting in my regular shifts at the casino at night. Every once in a while I look up from my ironing board as I hear a familiar voice from afar and then I go out to the stage and hear yet another returning singer. The adult voices are stronger and more confident than they were in high school. A shy guy who sang like a deer in the headlights his senior year is now eating up the chance to be on stage again.

This concert is one night only, with a catered reception immediately afterwards. Tickets are $20, or $5 for students, at the door.
