VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XIV FEATURED ANNUAL TREE LIGHTING


This week's virtual open mic started a little differently by airing a virtual tree lighting from the bandstand.   Organized by the Board of Trade and the Claus Cause the actual event was held the night before and the tree darkened until it was officially 'lit' at 7:00 pm Sunday.   A creative and safe way to keep a tradition alive.


The lighting was followed by the actual open mic and we would like to thank again all those who participated and shared their time and talents so we can continue to bring entertainment during these difficult times.


Next week we will once again continue a local tradition with a virtual Living Christmas Tree, presenting videos from previous years.   So be sure to tune in and take part.

SOLAR MILESTONE REACHED

The Board of the Band Association is pleased to announce that although it has not been quite one year since The Hall hooked into NS Power with the solar array, we have already reached our 2020 target for power production.   As of November 20, our solar array has produced 41.13 MWh of power in calendar 2020 and our annual power production estimate was for 41.113 MWh.   (See graph at the top of this page)

This is great news for The Hall, the community and the planet.   It is nice to know something is going right in this otherwise miserable year.

35TH SOCIAL-DISTANCE CONCERT A WONDERFUL RETROSPECTIVE

We hope that everyone tuned in this evening for a retrospective presentation of 35 weeks of Sunday evening entertainment sponsored by The Hall, the Parrsboro Lions Club and CICR radio. If you did, we hope you enjoyed and will watch again. If you missed it, you can go to www.thehall.ca and check it out on the Live Web Events page. And what a way to look back at this long journey, which is not yet ended, to keep music and performing alive at The Hall and in the community.

Special mention and thanks certainly must go to Rob Bentley whose creativity, talent and energy have combined to be the driving force and technical wizardry behind all of these virtual performances. Thanks also to all the performers who were featured this evening, and the even greater number we could not include in a brief presentation, who have kept the faith, and the music, going. Look for us again next week for Virtual Open Mic XIV.

VIRTUAL OPEN MIC XIII A WONDERFUL VARIETY


Another great evening of entertainment was unveiled during the 13th virtual open mic show from The Hall.   Carl introduced a song from a poem by Bruce Graham, the Citizens' choir performed their second virtual recording, Rob showed off his 'cookie tin banjo', Greg Moore did a great rendition of Edmund Fitzgerald in front of a green screen (more magic by Rob) and much, much more.  


These shows just keep getting better and better so thank you to all who contribute their time, talent and energy to help keep the open mic spirit alive during these times when we cannot assemble and enjoy the company of others.


Tune in next week for the next in our series of Social Distance concerts.

SOCIAL-DISTANCE CONCERT FEATURES THE BLUESCALE JAZZ QUARTET

What happens when four talented musicians gather, socially-distanced of course, to share their time and talents with us?   An evening of magic of course.   Many thanks to Merv, Krista, Michael and Rob for this evening's concert.    A wide variety of moods, all presented in a sultry and mellow jazz format, which featured the combined and individual talents of each of the members.

Tune in again next week for virtual open mic XIII when once again local performers take their time to entertain.
