Last night, I sang with 101 men in the 32nd. Annual Festival of Song at Estonian House.  First the Waukegan Swedish Glee Club sang 2 selections:  Island (above video) and Embraceable You.  And each of the other various choruses each sang 2 numbers.

The groups were Normennenes Singing Society (the host organization), Waukegan Swedish Glee Club, Bjornson Male Chorus, Elmhurst Männerchor, Chicago Swedish Male Chorus, Chicago Swedish Glee Club, The Sibelius Male Chorus of Chicago and Chicago Latvian Choir.

After that we combined to sing 6 numbers: Let There Be Music, Stout Hearted Men, Sanctus, Dear Land of Home, You'll Never Walk Alone. and God Bless America.

I have never sang with so many other Baritones.  It is exciting and fun; since my goofs are not as noticeable. I have never heard or sang Let There Be Music but somehow I got thru it.  The other groups I sing with have at most 15 other men with 4 Baritones.  Our entire Church choir has at most 16 total voices and usually 8-12.
