Dearborn arts organizations’ holiday music gift 

Choir  Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah……

Kevin Dewey, Director of Choirs, Henry Ford College  It was started by EmmaJean Woodyard who’s been a long working, hardworking professional and supporter of the arts in Dearborn and throughout southeastern Michigan for her entire career and adult life.  She approached the Dearborn Symphony, she’s a board member of the Dearborn Symphony.  And she approached me because I conduct several groups in the area and have done a lot of things for the city of Dearborn and for Henry Ford College after having grown up in Dearborn.  So, I’ve been doing a lot of Dearborn music for decades.  And she also approached the Players Guild of Dearborn, which is the wonderful community theater group here in Dearborn.  So, Dearborn Symphony is going to provide a couple of selections, holiday selections.  The Players Guild of Dearborn is going to provide a dramatic thing piece that’s going to be related to the holidays.  And Henry Ford College is providing two songs, one by our chorus, masters in this hall here you used to today, like that.  And then our blue fusion vocal jazz ensemble is going to take a-wassail song.  Here we come a-wassailing among the leaves so green.  And so, it’s a jazzy version of that old a-wassail song, and then and then the final number on the performance is going to be the Dearborn Symphony and Vanguard Voices, which is a group I conduct for the city of Dearborn.  They’re combining for the Hallelujah Chorus for the end of the concert.
