About 18 months ago members of the board of Collinsville Progress agreed to sponsor the creation of a Christmas music cd to be performed by various church choirs and city choral groups. Pat Murphy took on this huge task of lining up the choirs and finding ways to best record. He was helped during recording sessions by Joel Sprenger and Ben Martin of Ambit Audio.
Last night the cd was unveiled and dedicated at an event in the community room of the park district. Many people who were part of the choirs were there as well as the Mayor and most members of Collinsville Progress. Cd's were available for sale at the end of the program and I'm listening to it right now and it is so good. It gives me chills. Local people singing so beautifully.
Before the program began, people drifted in and found a seat or talked.
The back row was filled with members of Collinsville Progress.
The cake was made by Kruta Bakery and it was decorated with Christmas tree ornaments in frosting. It tasted excellent as always and was totally gone by the end of the night.
