I Ain't Gonna Study War No More by Barbara Biddison
I'm still singing that after hearing the last notes of the
concert--out the doors and down the steps of St. Paul's and home
again. The beautiful Wellsboro fall afternoon was just made even more
glorious by all four HG children and youth choirs and a guest
soloist....and accompanist, and directors....all back again.
I've sung with choirs all my life--since I was 16--with a few years
off here and there for other life demands. And I still sing today with WWC. I never tire of hearing, and seeing, the Hamilton-Gibson choirs. And I know how determined Putnam has been to revitalize the
choirs since Covid got in the way for a while. Seeing all "the little ones" up there tells me that we're coming back, that at least some of them will go on to the regular Children's Choir and the Youth Choir.
And that many will still be singing when they are older.
So on Sunday we were invited to sing I AINT GONNA STUDY WAR NO MORE with the choirs as the concert ended/. And I'm still singing as I write. Lovely.
[Note: The HG Children's Choirs will be singing on December 2 at 7:30 at St. Peter's Catholic Church, Wellsboro; the kick-off to the Dickens weekend.]
