No Kol Simcha rehearsal September 6, just Ensemble

Dear Kol Simcha,

Vance is so delighted by your progress, he’s giving you the week off! That’s right, no choir rehearsal this Wednesday Sept 6. The HHD Ensemble will still meet at 7 and rehearse their pieces, but unless you’re also in that, take a well-deserved rest.

Also, please see below from Steve Shulruff, and please continue sending your prayers of healing his way – they help!!

Love, James

Dear Kol Simcha,

I am writing to express my gratitude for your help at Mary’s funeral service. I was deeply moved by your willingness to sing at the service even though the Kol Simcha schedule is so incredibly busy these days. The singing was just beautiful. Eli, Eli was Mary’s favorite piece of liturgical music. She would have loved your rendition- I certainly did. Later as you all began singing the Spanish-Portuguese Oseh Shalom I started to break down since I knew we were nearing the end of the service. But slowly I found myself singing along (I actually remembered the bass part!) which really helped- it sure felt like we were all singing to her together. Thanks for everything- your understanding and support has been of great comfort to me over these past years. And I’m really looking forward to singing again with you all after the High Holidays.
L’Shalom,
Steve
