Ruby Tuesday Choir Performance
On the weekend we took in a performance of the Gettin' Higher Choir here in Victoria. I'm posting this photo for Ruby Tuesday because of all the red that the singers are wearing. I used to be a member of this choir and I love to go and listen to them sing. It's a "non-audition" choir, which means that anybody who wants to sing can take part--even if you think you can't sing. I loved that aspect of it because it allowed me (whose voice is less than perfect) to take part in group singing.
The concert was to raise funds for a village in Mozambique that this choir has been supporting for a number of years. Fundraising has enabled the village to build a school, a medical clinic, a well and many other things to make the lives of the people who live there better. You can read about it here. It's a wonderful cause, I think.
Plus the music is terrific. This is just before their very first song--and you can see how focused everyone is. The songs they choose are so full of spirit and love, it makes me want to find the time to take part again. Maybe in the fall....?
