A Note on Today’s Special Music: One unexpected blessing during the pandemic was that our music director reconnected with her first-ever choir teacher (in grades 5-9) from Meaford, Ontario.  It was with Mrs. Mary Clark that Lianne first learned how to sing and also how to read choral music.  Mrs. Clark recently had her old choir concert recordings converted from tapes to digital files.  Today’s anthems are from the children’s musical, Jonah-Man Jazz by Michael Hurd.  It was sung by the choirs of Meaford Community School (including Lianne) and Toronto’s Howard Public School (Jean Ashworth Gam, director), under the direction of Mary Clark.  The spring concert took place in the auditorium of Georgian Bay Secondary School in Meaford, Ontario, on June 8th, 1982.  If you would like to hear the entire Jonah-Man Jazz musical, as well as the spring concert, simply click here: https://soundcloud.com/maryclarkchoirs/howard-psc-mcs-groups-a-spring-concert-19820608
