Bremerton Chorale women

Last night we had our final rehearsal for the Bremerton Symphony Chorale Concert that will be held tonight, April 17. While the women were rehearsing their numbers, I sat in the front row and made this loose sketch.

This concert is entitled, "Americana", and it features music that's characteristically American: Shenandoah, Simple Gifts, O Susanna, and Wayfaring Stranger. I love these songs because I sang them as a kid and they bring such rich associations with them. We're also singing the music of composers Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, and Irving Berlin - American classics.
