Lippe joins the choir!

Lippe came with me to choir rehearsal tonight.

He’s been looking forward to it for days. He missed his chance to sing in the Boar’s Head Festival, and was so eager that he couldn’t wait until I finished dinner and packed up my music.

On our way from the parking lot to the choir room, we stopped to look at the lighted tree in the inner courtyard of Third Presbyterian Church.

We stopped at my box to pick up new music and my copy of the choir newsletter.

Right away, Lippe spotted a typo. “It’s not 2011, it’s 2012!”

Since the assistant organist hadn’t arrived yet, Lippe offered to accompany the rehearsal. That didn’t go very well.

After a brief voice placement audition, Lippe was accepted into the tenor section, where the other singers made him feel welcome.




While Lippe worked very hard, and tried his best, the result was less than successful. Lippe will not be singing with us on Sunday morning.

    WOW Lippe, they accepted you into the tenor section! What an honor! I think, you would have needed a little more rehearsing, to join the choir on a Sunday morning… Just a little! And playing the organ with paws is quite a challenge! Better leave that to the hoomans, too!

    Thanks a lot to the choir members for giving you such a warm welcome and for the lovely pictures! We had sooooo much fun looking at them and reading about Lippe’s adventure!

    Much love,
    Freya and mum
