2021 Holiday Season Note From Peggy

Dear Choir,

Happy Holidays! I don’t know about you, but the season for me is not complete without our Holiday Concert at the Libby Gardner Concert Hall.

I miss the 12 weeks of rehearsals with you. We know how to stand shoulder to shoulder and work hard for the love of our community. We know how to laugh together. We know how to support and love each other. And we know how to sing. Oh, do we know how to sing! 

Could anyone question our love of music? Never!

I miss seeing the excitement in each of your faces as you walk onto the stage. I miss seeing the joy in your eyes as you sing, and the joy and appreciation of the audience as they hear you sing. We’ve had the opportunity for the last two years to feel what it’s like to be without each other; without all of that joy and music and excitement, and it’s a profound loss.

The experience that we share together as a choir is one of the treasures of my life, and I have a deeper appreciation of that treasure and what we have accomplished together in the past because of our inability to do so this year and last.

But I’m excited for 2022! And so is the SLACC Board. We are hopeful that once again we will be able to be together as a choir and make our beautiful music to share with our families, our friends, and the community.

Maybe 2022 will include a Spring Concert if health concerns improve quickly, and if so, we will be together again sooner than expected. And then it won’t be so hard to wait for our beloved Holiday Concert.

Choir, you have my heart and my wish for truly warm and happy holidays for each of you!

With love,

Avenues Choir 2020 Video Concert

Please join us on Thursday, December 17th at 7:30 pm for the premiere of our 2020 Video Concert.
