Our satellite dish provider recently added a whole series of non-commercial music stations to our selection of channels.
It's fun to flip from Bing Crosby on one station to bossa nova on another.
The variety extends to a number of Christian music satellite stations. It's amazing the different beats and rhythms used to get the sacred sound around.
Different beats, different rhythms, but all sharing the same message.
Speaking of the beat of a different drummer, it's hard to believe that it's almost time for the Sunnyside Community Choir to get ready for Easter Sunday, just seven weeks away on April 8. So if our growing community choir is going to get an Easter program together, I suppose we better start thinking ahead.
There's already been some interest in meeting every Wednesday, as we did in preparation for Christmas.
So the Sunnyside Community Choir will start anew with a view towards Easter, beginning with our first practice next Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Fourth and Edison in Sunnyside.
As with the Christmas program, the Easter program will include the songs we're going to practice, as well as some scripture reading.
Once again, the choir is open to anyone wanting to join in the fun.
Stay tuned and, beginning next Wednesday, join me in trying to stay in tune.
Until then, I've got another tune in mind just now as there's a mean bluegrass fiddle calling my name on the TV.
