A Golden Celebration

We attended the Norwalk Community Chorale Golden Celebration spring concert. The chorale has been putting on free Christmas and Spring concerts for 50 years. This fabulous concert lasted for 2 hours.

I was very impressed by the range of music that was presented. Songs from Les Miserables, The Sound of Music, West Side Story, The Wizard of Oz, and Phantom of the Opera rang throughout the concert hall. 

One of my favorite parts of the concert was when veterans were asked to stand and be recognized for their service to our country. The Battle Hymn of the Republic was then sung in honor of all those who have fought or are fighting to protect the USA.

For the Chorale to learn so many songs and perform them perfectly, they must have spent significant time practicing. At the end of the concert, I cheered long and loud for all the members who brought a beautiful night of music to Norwalk.
