Classical Views: Do you love to sing?

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 by DIANE WITTRY Special to The Press in Focus

Allentown Symphony Chorus holding auditions

I remember growing up in Pasadena, Calif., with the family gathered around the player piano in the living room having a great time singing together. Singing has always been a part of my life and it is within this type of personal engagement with music that I feel most fulfilled.

Throughout all age ranges, singing has been a positive outlet for emotions and a way to express joy. Music has that wonderful ability to convey different types of emotions. Singing is a great way to share in the music-making.

Organ concert for anniversary

St. John's Lutheran Church organist Stephen Williams performs a concert, 7:30 p.m. Nov 22, St. John's Lutheran Church, 37 S. Fifth St., Allentown, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the dedication of St. John's pipe organ built by the Reuter Organ Company, Lawrence, Kan.

The concert program, part of the Arts at St. John's series that Williams directs, is said to be identical to that of a November 1993 concert when the organ was dedicated.
