The church I go to has been undergoing renovations since last January and now they are almost done. The choir is putting together a Broadway Night (which is really more a Broadway and Popular music night), something we usually do every May, to re-open the Wednesday night programing. Fair enough.

What I am less thrilled about is the fact that our choir director has picked two minstrel songs to feature that night. As far as I know, no one in the choir is particularly thrilled with the musical content of the songs, and with the general history of Mistrel shows they are kind of uncomfortable to sing. Not that there is anything specific in either of the songs that pings me just sort of the genre in general. Oh well.

In more exciting choir related happenings our big piece for the advent concert (I wish they would call it "The Word in Music" as the church I grew up in did, as that name sounds so much nicer) this year is the Vaughn Williams Hodie. I'm excited!
