2006 Illinois Sacred Harp Convention, Part Two

Here's Chris, Dad, & Mom on the museum grounds at lunch.
Here's Dad, me, & Mom. My funny look is aimed at Chris - for insisting I be in a picture.

Here's Dad, finding his place, while sitting in the back row of the bass section.

Here's Chris, Mom, and their many new friends in the tenor (lead) section waiting for their entrance.

In short, the day was wonderful. All four of us jumped right in, tried to do our best, and came away with extremely happy hearts and somewhat hoarse voices. I wish we had a recording of the day, as the singing was so beautiful! The convention will continue tomorrow, and many asked us to return...but we explained we must attend worship services with our fellow church members. However, we cannot wait to reconnect with these new friends at the next convention. (And, we hope to put in a lot of practice before then!)
