Dorothy Welch 40th Concert – by Sandy McBride

It was indeed a “Grand Night for Singing” on Saturday, May 14 as the Dorothy Welch Choral Society celebrated 40 years of making beautiful music.  A small but appreciative audience was treated to a series of timeless favorites at the Paul N. Luther Auditorium at Mechanicville High School. They led off with the concert’s title song and ended with the John Lennon classic “Imagine”.  Directed by Vern Hellijas, the society’s fifth director who has held that position for 16 years, and accompanied on the piano by Kathy Funaro who has been the group’s accompanist for 17 years, the choir sang a variety of old and not so old tunes to the delight of the audience.
