Dear editor, On behalf of the executive of the Georgetown Choral Society (GCS), I want to thank everyone who was involved in the choir's Christmas Pops Concerts in celebration of the 35th anniversary of the founding of the choir. It was a special occasion since the concerts were performed in the Georgetown District High School cafeteria, the same place that the very first concert was held back in 1971. As with that first concert, the choir was again accompanied by the high school jazz and the pops band, and the young musicians taught by Eleanor Wallace again demonstrated the terrific musical talent that has been cultivated for so many years. We are very grateful to all the local schools who created the wonderful art that converted the cafeteria into a bright, cheerful venue, and also to the Children's Chorus for joining with the GCS for the performance. With such a talented group of young people learning to love choral music under the baton of artistic director Dale Wood, the future of the senior choir is bright indeed. And of course, the keyboard magic of accompanist and local resident Chris Dawes added immeasurably to the success of the concerts, Our warmest thanks also to all the choir members and many other volunteers who worked hard to rehearse for over three months, arrange all the seating, decorate the hall, prepare and serve all the food and drinks, and coordinate more than 200 singers and musicians. Their efforts were rewarded by appreciative sold-out audiences on both nights, and the GCS looks forward to continuing the tradition of excellence in choral music in the years ahead. Laurent Thibault president, Georgetown Choral Society
