St. Joseph concert in Orleans - a Yuletide Love Fest! Gala 40th Concert Tomorrow!

A brand new church! And what a beauty! You are going to see lots of Chrismassy pics from this venue over the next couple of weeks. 
Blue votive candles and grey stone walls lend a touch of originality to St. Joseph
Oh, yeah - we did a Stairwell Carollers Christmas carol concert here- Bonus! 

Everything about this church was top drawer. Our reception from the outset was exuberant and the church representatives very helpful. 
Graham (bass or tenor as the need arises) and Christophe, bass, ponder lighting needs
Our solid tech crew, led by René, bass, always get to the venue early to set up lighting equipment and tape down electrical cords for safety.
Setting up where we all stand for best sound is crucial
We arrive shortly after the tech crew to get notes from the director, warm up and do rehearsal of Beginnings and endings of songs.

Our director Pierre gives his all despite a recent hospital stay. Dedication!

Thanks to everyone who helped out! And thanks so much to S. Joseph for the generous munchies after the concert. We again proved ourselves to be the Eatwell Carollers!
