Lewes Men's Chorus outdid itself again
The Lewes Men’s Chorus presented yet another magnificent concert Dec. 21 at the Bethel Church Hall, Lewes.
Titled “Christmas in Lewes” named after an original composition by the musical director, Mr. Bill Earl, with 19 singers and two band members and 27 numbers, announced the Christmas season. There were excellent solos, trios and quartets. An a cappella offering titled “In The Bleak Mid-Winter” was a harmonious blend of tones attained from many hours of dedicated practice.
The group is celebrating 25 years together, founded by the talented pianist Prof. Bill Earl. They perform at many retirement communities and charitable events, as well as the May and December concerts open to the public.
The ever-rhythmic Tapsations dances and beautiful costume changes added to the enjoyment of the once again packed house.
The evening ended too soon, in the traditional way, with the audience participating in singing “God Bless America” and “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”
The program was led by choral director Mr. Ken Stevens and his assistant Mr. Fred Bunch. The group expresses their thanks to Bethel United Methodist Church, Chip Brittingham and Lewes Dairy, the wives for homemade refreshments, Sharon Kreitzer for stage design and programs, Norm Macturk for sound production and Charlie Deal for poster and program printing.
A magical evening was enjoyed by all. Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year.
