Sweet September!

The beginning of September brought the end of a work week in Chicago with Mat LeJeune, the mixing engineer who worked skillfully to enhance our choir recording. The week was lots of work and fun for Kathy and son, Jay, who joined her in Chicago. Mastering is now being finished by Danny Leake. The kickoff concert is planned for November 5 at St. Sebastian's, where the new CD will be available, God willing.

The choir also enjoyed a spirited trip to the IHM motherhouse in Monroe, Michigan on Sept. 17. After an easy bus trip, the choir sang many of their favorites, as well as an emotional and very beautiful offering of Gounod's "Ave Maria" by Aleta Killian. It was quite memorable! Many thanks to the sisters for inviting and hosting us, and to the choir for sharing their time and talents. After dinner at the convent, we went to the Hospice of Northwest Ohio, in Toledo, and sang for some hospice residents, family, staff...and their resident golden lab. We appreciated the kind and efficient service of bus driver Ron. Next in store: CD Completion... TRUST IN THE LORD!
