The after party went late into the night throughout many of Galilee Centre's cozy rooms. Here in the porch, Gabe regaled the group with tales of Chanticleer.

Testimony of the weekend's success from returning bass, Keith - as reported in our upcoming Christmas newsletter:

"The Choral Workshop held May 4th to 6th at The Galilee Centre in Arnprior was a true highlight of our 40th anniversary season. The fact that we were "in residence" helped promote those personal contacts and friendships so essential in singing as an ensembled chorale. Gabriel Lewis-O'Connor, former member of the world-renowned male chorus Chanticleer, proved to be a most congenial and engaging leader, while at the same time reflective, analytical, instructive and encouraging.  He is also a great raconteur: the workshops and the informal gatherings- as if not already spirited enough- were further enlivened by Gabe's wealth of stories!  
Keith chats with Kelly while choir gamers enjoy some tabletop action.
The concluding concert at St John Chrysostom, with choirs from Glebe Collegiate presenting their own pieces and joining with The Carollers and Gabe as soloist in Pierre's arrangement of "Hostias" from Fauré's Requiem, was, surely, an absolute delight for singer and listener alike!"
