Choral Guild Honors Former Members at 40th Anniversary Reception

At a reception immediately following its recent Brahms "Requiem" concert, the Williamsburg Choral Guild invited all former member-singers to join in celebrating the efforts of the many singers, audience members, and patrons in building the Guild's success over forty years. Artistic Director/Conductor Jay BeVille spoke of the important collaboration of singers, audience, patrons, and local businesses that has enabled the Guild to grow in both membership and its ability to present fine choral music of many styles. It is notable that, in 2015, the Guild's audience and singers voted the Brahms "Requiem" as the piece they would most like to hear as part of the 40th Anniversary Season. Tickets for the Brahms sold out quickly, reflecting the results of the audience vote. Some of the honored former member-singers are shown, from left: Nancy Sherman, Lynne Detmer, Jim Detmer, Will DeLara, Barbara Morris, Jean Cogle, Kathryn Blue, Ann Storey, Dick Storey, Marge Tongue, Don Demmert, John Peay, Patricia Hoppe, and David Hamilton.
