Bud and I went to the concert Sunday afternoon at Immaculate Conception Church. Genesee Valley Chorus and the Wellsville Performing Arts Orchestra presented Handel's Messiah.
I had not seen the church since the completion of the restoration project.
Here's a photo from a friend ... can't see the choir very well, but you can see some of the restoration. (I was even farther back, so I didn't even try to get a photo...)
This was a lovely concert in a beautiful setting!
I just made a little interactive posting for my Facebook page...I thought the results were good. I kept it kind of short because I loose interest in the long ones . . .
It is interesting how these work out ... Erinnae (my daughter) is definitely NOT one to "Bah! Humbug!" anything Christmas, and Abigail (my daughter in law) doesn't own an ugly Christmas sweater. However, Nathanael (my son in law) very definitely would offer a joyful Christmas blessing!

I hope you didn't miss it! But if you did, there are other performances.
The Andover Ecumenical choir performed at the David A. Howe Library in Wellsville on Monday night. The music was a great start for our Christmas celebrations.
If you look closely you'll see Bud in the first picture....you have to look harder to find him in the second.
