On Stage: Music Makes Me Happy Chorus
Since our last update, the Music Makes Me Happy Chorus has given 4 performances, for approximately 200 people total!
The Holiday Sing-With-Us Concert on December 19th was festive and fabulous. This "Jingle Jingle Jingle" concert featured bell songs of all types, including guest handbell players.
We did our second annual “MLK Day Tour” as part of Lexington’s MLK Day of Service - two consecutive performances: first the card-making event at Lexington Montessori School, and second at Waltham Crossing Senior Living for a group of seniors and families who had just completed an intergenerational service project.
Finally, we spent the afternoon of Valentine’s Day at the Brockton VA Hospital, singing “happy songs” for a group of very appreciative veterans, as part of our “Traveling Smiles” program.
The joy that is spread at these concerts is experienced by both the audience as they sing along with us, and the chorus members. Our lovely chorus member Mary reflected after the MLK Day concerts:
I had a stupendous time singing at the two
Places that we went it was nice to sing
With Mmmh singers I want to thank you for
Giving us the opportunity to make people feel good about themselves.
Thank you Mary for capturing the essence of Music Makes Me Happy Chorus! We are looking forward to a “Traveling Smiles” performance at Boston Children’s Hospital on April 30th.
