On Thursday February 26th, instead of having regular rehearsal at BCC central, Premier Choir headed to the Boston Globe headquarters in Dorchester to perform for their Black History Month Celebration titled "The Strength in Our Community". BCC has really appreciated being featured in the Globe in the past, so it was wonderful and rewarding to perform for one of their events.
We arrived at 5:30 and had a chance to get in almost a full rehearsal (which was much needed PC had performances on the two following days as well) and eat a lovely dinner provided by the Globe before performing. Great progress was made musically. Additionally, everyone got a snazzy name tag with their name on it, which we all got to take home as souveniers.
Finally, Premier got to perform. The globe performance space was really cool, it had a set of stairs that spiraled around and lead to the stage area, so we had a great time creeping down the stairs for the song "Uberlebensgroß." We then sang a set that was very much in the spirit of the event including, "Come Sunday", "Bridge Over Troubled Water", and "Up to the Mountain". It was fun to sing songs from MLK because we've been working on other songs since and thus haven't sung them in a while. Overall, the performance was delightful.
