I always enjoy this group of singers and their unique and intelligent singing. I try and hear them every time they perform.
As last year, for the first part of the performance, we were "treated" to the crying of a small child. I remember writing the same thing last year and that is that small children who can't be counted on to be quiet should not be brought to such a venue where they might inflict their own brand of sound effects on the audience's enjoyment of the music. It is not a fault of them at all but is on the judgement of the parents who selfishly bright them along! Parents: Please either get a sitter or stay at home! This time, at least, the child was rather rapidly taken out of the area so only the first part of the first song was affected.
Now, back to the performance itself: This group just keeps getting better and better. The harmonies are tight, and the choices of music are ecletic and diverse, ranging from Shaker music to Bossa Nova!
