SONGS FROM THE HEART WORKSHOP



The first of this year's Workshops at The Hall was held over the weekend and was a completely unqualified success.  Over 20 participants joined together in song under the facilitation of Stephen Muise, director of Men of the Deeps to learn, experience and participate in ensemble singing, some for the very first time.



Stephen brought his years of experience and expert background to the workshop and guided the group through the mundane, such as warmups and breathing exercises, to the pure joy of singing and putting one's own emotions as a signature on the music.



The workshop concluded on Sunday afternoon when the group performed five songs they had learned over the course of the two days, along with several solo or ensemble performances by individual members of the group. A large and very appreciative audience was entertained, and moved, by the music and stories.




All participants and audience members alike agreed that this was a brilliantly successful weekend of learning and joy.


The entire weekend was supported by a cast of volunteers without whom it would not nearly have been as successful.  Many, many thanks to Beth Peterkin, Anna Goulet, Tommy Strutz, Bob Jamieson, Rick Sylvester and so many others whose efforts made it all possible.

CHILI COOK OFF A GREAT SUCCESS   


It was a fun evening at The Hall Saturday evening as many people came out to sample ten different chili recipes, complete with rolls and salad all to the rocking music of the Wazoo Band.   Many thanks to all the participants, and volunteer workers, who brought this fun event into being.


The brainchild of Beth Peterkin, this was a first time event for The Hall, everyone present had a great time dressing for summer and celebrating with far too much to eat.    And yes, those were hula hoops available for play.

GREAT OPEN MIC NIGHT

Friday evening saw The Hall hopping to a tremendous variety of music as Open Mic returned once more.

(Floyd Anderson was in town visiting and gave us some great memories)

From blues to soul, country to folk a great line up of entertainers had the audience singing along and tapping their feet as they appreciated the talents on display.

(It was great having Gary Webb drop in for the evening)

Many thanks to the musicians who donate their time and talent to support the Open Mic, the proceeds of which all go to the ongoing restoration efforts at The Hall

(Charlie James joined in the fun)

The next Open Mic will not be until May 3rd as we will not hold one on Good Friday.    We hope to see you all there.   Bring a friend,  Entry is merely a donation at the door.
