Relay for Life

Wow! Tonight we performed for a full audience! They were bringing in more chairs to accommodate the crowd.

We played a variety of music from classical, Broadway, religious, movies, and more. While we played, a slide show ran of those whose lives have been touched by cancer. The slide show consisted of survivors and those who have passed.

I will never forget the reaction of the audience as we hit the last note of our final song, "Pirates of the Caribbean". They literally jumped out of their seats and yelled, "HOORAY!" The applause continued as we recognized our conductor, she recognized us, and we presented her with many, beautiful flowers.

It was an appropriate ending for a wonderful concert, and I know the real "HOORAY" will come when we learn how much money was donated to benefit American Cancer Society. I can hardly wait!
