On Tuesday, December 15th, we gave our first public performance as a chorus: a Sing-With-Us Holiday Concert at the Cotting School Auditorium. Chorus members looked sharp and sounded beautiful, while audience members listened, supported, and enthusiastically sang along to both Christmas and Hanukkah songs. The chorus sang with angelic halos, soft candlelight, and unmatched vibrancy. As we enjoyed a delicious reception after the concert, all in attendance continued to feel the joyful spirit of the holidays. We especially loved this feedback from a friend in attendance:
"A magical musical evening abounding in angels and light.
So happy I was able to be there."

Lexington MLK Day of Service Performance
We were honored to be invited as guest performers for the city of Lexington's 3rd annual MLK Day of Service. As families gathered at the Lexington Montessori School to make beautiful cards for veterans and hospital patients, the Music Makes Me Happy Chorus delighted their ears with songs about inclusion, freedom, and peace. From our renditions of "This Land is Your Land" to "Oh, Freedom", we saw people tapping their feet and singing along, and received enthusiastic reviews from the event coordinators and volunteers. We were delighted to add our gifts to the wonderful and meaningful Day of Service. Thanks to our devoted volunteer Dora for facilitating this opportunity!
