Straight No Chaser

A student from Traveling Choir came in today and told me about a group which he heard on the radio which sang all sorts of Christmas carols all at the same time. We looked it up together on YouTube and I roared with laughter! It was just what I needed today. Watch and listen. I think you'll love it too! (Thanks, Eric!)

Listen to WOSH 1490 AM on Christmas Day!

UPDATE (12/21): I just heard from WOSH radio when last year's Christmas concert will be aired. This is the email I got this morning:


Tell your family and friends! WLA is on the air (1490 AM) on Christmas Day!

I got a phone call yesterday from a very nice gentleman at WOSH radio in Oshkosh, WI asking if I had any recordings of WLA students playing or singing Christmas music. WOSH 1490 AM will be airing recordings of local (yes, Fond du Lac is local to Oshkosh!) high school Christmas concerts on Christmas Day. So, I sent him the recording of WLA's 2006 Christmas Concert "Night of Miracles, Night of Grace". Watch this post in the coming days to see when on Christmas Day you can listen to WLA choirs and band on WOSH 1490 AM.

St. Paul's, Mt. Calvary

In a slight change to the original singing schedule, Traveling Choir will sing in TWO SERVICES this Sunday, Dec. 16, 2007 at St. Paul's, Mt. Calvary. Pastor Barenz notified me a couple weeks ago and a concerned dad called WLA this week to remind us that there are two services at St. Paul's, Mt. Calvary: 8 and 10 AM. Traveling Choir will sing in both services. Students riding the bus should be at WLA by 6:15 AM. The bus will leave at 6:30 AM. Students driving by car should be to St. Paul's by 7:00 AM. GET TO BED EARLY SATURDAY NIGHT!

This is My Word (Pepper Choplin)
O Christ, the Same (Craig Courtney)
This Little Light of Mine (arr. Dale Witte)
Witness (arr. Jack Halloran)
E'en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come (Paul Manz)
Gloria (Randol Alan Bass)
