A Different Beginning in Helmond, Holland
Djambe followed by a group of voices singing Evening rise, spirit come… .
That’s how we welcomed 2018 in the Netherlands, last January 5th, at 08:00PM at the Taoist Tai Chi Centre in Helmond … with a new year concert!
For two months we called out for hidden talents among members and … the “yin push” helped!
Members, family and friends (around 90 people) came from different branches to participate in and to assist to a diversified musical program: classics from the 18th and 19th centuries and songs from the 20th. Some were vintage, some were sixties, some were seventies … and traditional tunes from different continents as well. Also different instruments and combinations rang out: voice, piano, bugle, harmonica, transverse flute, djambe, ngoni, guitar and drum.
It was one and a half hours of music closing with Singing all together, singing just for joy. Afterwards there was time for making acquaintanceships, drinks and appetizers and lots of smiles! It was a great evening, with a good feeling among those present.
“Allerbeste wensen voor her nieuwjaar!”
