How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This is a wonderful group of great local musicians, and the choice of holiday tunes was also great. The only problem I had was difficulty in hearing the narrator, perhaps because I was sitting on the side of the church in what is probably the choir's normal seating location. Also, although I thought the vocalists were all wonderful, I would enjoy it more if the female vocalist was a bit more edgy, lighthearted, and aggressive in her performance, which is a complaint I personally have also received when playing keyboards at local blues jams. I am concentrating on trying to play something decent, so it's difficult for me to also be an exciting performer, but it's because I'm inexperienced. This lady is great, and I'm sure she could put more "oomph" in her performance if she chose to. All in all, a joyful concert -- this group is always great. Thank you.
