An enchanting evening


Once more I am writing to say hats off to Mr. Stubbs and your talented group of voices. In attending "A Christmas Madrigal," Friday, Dec. 3, my daughter, her friend and my cousin were entertained and fed in a royal manner! From the jester, Dayton Griggs, to the beggar who stole my daughter's butter and each choir member's crystal clear beautiful voice and to the musicians, we say, 'Thank you!' This enchantment was topped off as the "Silent Night" soft voices departed, by a tiny voice that said "Bye bye," that sent a warm glow through the entire audience. Thank you.
