Hey all KC area folks, here’s your reminder about the East Hill Singers concert tonight at 7:00 p.m. at Church of the Resurrection at 135th and Roe in Leawood. Great concert — standing ovation last week. 37 min. security inmates from Lansing learning positive values and creating something beautiful — with 30 volunteer singers from the community. Don’t miss it.

I’m excited about the upcoming East Hill Singers concerts. Each program has at least one unique piece that no one has ever seen before, and it’s always cool to discover that. Each audience has many people who attend every concert and have for years. And each audience also has lots of people who have never been before and weren’t at all familiar with the chorus. I love meeting these folks, because at least the ones that talk with me are amazed, enthused, and inspired by what they heard and saw. I think one powerful aspect of the concerts is that each person in the audience can begin to see each inmate as an individual human being. Yes, each is a criminal. But each is also a combination of many other aspects — dad, grandson, farmer, guitar player, carpenter…
Anyway, the East Hill Singers puts on a good show. But there’s more to it than the music.
