Letter to the Editor from Uxbridge Chamber Choir
Uxbridge Chamber Choir certainly no Scrooge…..says Paula Donahoe of the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Auxiliary.
Many thanks to all who attended the Chamber Choir’s presentation of “A Christmas Carol” on December 18, 2011. An enthusiastic audience was treated to a very entertaining reading of the Dickens’ story (with CBC guests Ted Barris and Judy Maddren) interspersed with a variety of wonderful seasonal music from the Chamber Choir and their special guests, the Uxbridge Youth Choir. Congratulations to Tom Baker (and special mention to David Geene who carried the baton) and Jennifer Neveu-Cook for directing such an enjoyable program. And, true to the spirit of the story, the Chamber Choir as able to present a cheque for $1,200 for the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Auxiliary – funds that will go towards the Auxiliary’s goal of over $200,000 this year to purchase a new ultrasound machine with echocardiogram capabilities. The Cottage Hospital Auxiliary recognizes that this gift from the Choir is yet another example of how this community continues to support the work of the Auxiliary and its ongoing fundraising efforts.
