2011 Holiday Concert Update
Hi everyone. The Annual Holiday Concert held here at the Library on Thurs. Dec. 15th, 2011, was enjoyed by everyone.
The concert commenced at 8pm, with Teresa Wilhelm, Friends Director and Mistress of Ceremonies, welcoming guests. The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beach’s Woodwind Ensemble performing several pieces, ranging from classical to latino. (I liked the latino piece, with a tango beat.)
Ms. Dorothy Richter, master puppeteer and long-standing member of our community, delivered a wonderful speech with wise and humorous advice for all. (This year, her focus was on Genesis, Chapter 6 — Noah, the Ark, and the Flood.)
Mike Bayer and his colleagues of the Brass Ensemble then treated the audience to several arrangements, concluding with a medley of carols and audience members joining in the singing.
The food and refreshments were delicious and more than ample. Thanks to the musicians and especially to Teresa Wilhelm for her organization and coordination of this event.
