Barbara Hall, Professor Emerita of Music at Centre, led 20 members of the women’s choir Sounding Joy and 14 members of the men’s choir Resonance in a celebration of the season with songs.  The choirs were accompanied by pianist Terry Wasson (not shown). Both choirs sing music of many styles and countries, from Renaissance masters to the great composers of today and folk songs from around the world.  In addition to giving the gift of music, the choirs raise money to support a variety of charities. Their selections for Rotary included “Alleluia,” from the middle ages by composer Vidimus Stellam; “Boar’s Head Carol,” first published in 1521 by Wynken de Worde in “Christmasse Carolles;” “Songbird,” by Kenny “G” Gorelick and made famous by Fleetwood Mac; and “See, amid the Winter’s Snow,” an English Christmas carol written by Edward Caswall.
