To All the Choruses and Conductors who responded to the #AliceIs90 Campaign
Seasons Greetings, and Happy New Year! As we come to the end of this celebratory year, I am overcome with thanks and gratitude for the many friends who have toasted me online with the supreme compliment of performing my music. I had grave doubts about being able to reach a goal of 90 videos -- and you have done it, and more! I'm amazed at the variety of pieces you chose, and thrilled at the different sizes and locations and kinds of choruses. It feels as if there is an invisible (but very audible!) chain of groups linked together by their love of choral singing, and my music, all enjoying the very real benefits that come to us when we sing together. You are all part of my very large and very melodious family. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my 90th year so special. May blessings abound for each one of you.
with love, Alice Parker
December has come and gone and we're entering a new year. This means our celebration of Alice's 90th year has come to a close. If your choir was registered to participate and you haven't uploaded the video, please do so, we'd like to hear your performance. To see a list of the participants and learn more about their performances, go to Alice is 90.
