We have a great opportunity this year to represent our District at the Midwinter festival with the Sunshine Statesmen Seniors Chorus! As you know, Midwinter will be in Jacksonville this year, so we will have no better opportunity to showcase our talents. We are hoping to have over 60 men join us on stage, and we need your help!
The Seniors Chorus will be a Sunshine District wide group of men 55 years or older. We have enlisted a great director, Jack Slamka of Power Play, as well as some talented folks to assist him in making this the best seniors chorus possible!
We will meet twice more with the whole chorus under Jack’s direction: November 16th and December 14th, both in Sebring.
The songs will be:
The Sunshine Of Your Smile (Tom Gentry)
Taking A Chance On Love (Jay Giallombardo)
Charts and Tracks will be made available to anyone who is interested.
Here is an mp3 file of Power Play’s performance of the two songs.
