All selections from handouts from The Christian Harmony, "Carolina" book
Jennifer Bauer, Park Manager, welcomed the group and introduced Don Wiley who offered prayer. He then briefly presented the shapes, scales and rhythm notation. The following songs (from "The Christian Harmony") were sung, first by the individual parts in the shapes, then all four parts in the shapes, and then the poetry.
78b, New Britain
117, Angel Band
Don called Dan Huger to lead 293, Lenox
Mary Baumeister then led 214, Hosanna
Attendance was estimated at from 50 to 70. (No one seems to have made a head count.) There were many newcomers. The class was very receptive and made a wonderful sound. It has been decided that the third Sunday afternoon Johnson City workshop will now be held at the Park. Thanks to the park staff them for their hospitality.
It was a fine, mild spring day at the historic Old Fields.
