Video of the Week: Elijah Rock

Back in 2011, I joined up with a Mount Airy musical group, Voce.  That was a fun year.

As you may know, Mount Airy was the stomping grounds of Andy Griffith, and is the inspiration for the fictional city of Mayberry on the Andy Griffith show.  So, in this Christmas concert, we had a Barney impersonator, and even the actress, Betty Lynn who played Thelma Lou, was secretly in attendance.

The first song in this video is "Andy's Mayberry Christmas Card List" by Doug Reeves.

Then, I come in around the 5:00 mark.  I sing backup to award-winning Melva Houston in her rendition of "Elijah Rock."  It was a night to remember!

Video of the Week: Banquet Fugue by Rutter

This week (yeah I'm a little late on this one), I relive my high-school days.  I have many fond memories of singing fun songs, crazy songs, silly songs, etc.  One of my favorites was when we performed the entire "Reluctant Dragon" by John Rutter.

In particular was the "Banquet Fugue."

Here's a performance (not mine, but still good) ...
