Leaving Each Other Is Hard To Do

This morning members woke up with bittersweet hearts, knowing that that was our last home stay, eager to sleep in our own beds, but sad that tour is slowly coming to an end. In Chorale Circle this morning, we talked about the wonderful concert we had last night and our hopes for our last day together. From there we boarded… Read more →

I Know It’s Today

The Cardinal Chorale awoke this morning to a bright sunshine, chirping birds, the beauty of the lilies, and the first official day of Summer!

Before departing from our lovely… Read more →

During our morning Chorale Circle, we took turns reflecting on last night’s concert and talking about all the highs and lows of the day before. With refreshed minds, we boarded… Read more →

As We Are Walking In the Light

On a wonderful morning like this, when the sun was as big as a yellow balloon, singers awoke for another full day of music-making and friendship. Before rehearsal, a lot of Cardinal Chorale members could have been spotted at Tim Horton’s, ingesting the delightful smell and taste of freshly baked donuts and cappuccinos. We gathered back at the church, robed… Read more →

I Hear Music

This morning marked the beginning of the annual Summer Tour as members of the Cardinal Chorale assembled in Coshocton. For many, this rehearsal day was not only a good chance to review the more than 60 songs the ensemble will perform during the next six days on the road, but also an opportunity to refresh and renew friendships with fellow… Read more →
