bits and pieces

My writing up of my Hawaii travel notes continues very slowly (I am in the middle of finals, and so that understandably takes precedence) but in the interim, I wanted to post a few additional notes….

First: On Friday night (8 December), I am singing in a Christmas concert with the New York Chamber Singers. The location is St. Agnes’ Catholic Church on 43rd street, between 3rd and Lexington. It is right by Grand Central, so very easy to get to. The concert starts at 19:30, so if you are in New York, please join us.

Second: On Sunday night (10 December), I am singing in another Christmas concert with the NYU Canterbury Club and the Protestant Churches organization at NYU. This is a sing-along Carols concert, with a party following. The location is the Church of the Ascension on the corner of 5th Avenue and 10th Street. Again, a very central location, and easy to find, so if you are in NY on Sunday, please join us there.

Finally, purely by accident, I walked into the concourse at Grand Central Terminal yesterday just as the Holiday Lights Show started. What an amazing sight. There was a burst of music and colour, and the concourse was transformed. Snowflakes, New York City scenes and very creative Kaleidoscope type images turned an already beautiful space into a little bit of magic. I was rushing from class to a choir rehearsal, but the show stopped me in my tracks, and left me feeling very festive, and very happy to be in New York.
