[NAME] IS HERE WITH FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AND YOU SAID YOU HAVE SOMETHING EXCITING COMING UP ON MONDAY. YES A WEEK FROM NOW WE HAVE THE ST. THOMAS CHOIR OF MEN AND BOYS FROM NEW YORK CITY AND THEY ARE TOURING THIS SEASON. WE ARE ONE OF FOUR STOPS, THE ONLY STOP IN EAST TEXAS. IT IS MONDAY, MARCH 18 AT 7:00 P.M.. Olivia: TELL ME A LITTLE BIT OF PEOPLE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE GROUP IS, CAN YOU EXPLAIN IT TO THEM. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW PARTS OF THE WORLD WHERE BOYS AGE 7 Ã SOMETIMES 13 LIVE ON-SITE AND THEY HAVE THEIR OWN SCHOOL AND THEY WORK WITH PROFESSIONAL SINGERS TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL TALENT. Olivia: HOW DID YOU GET THEM TO STOP IN HERE? Guest: I’VE KNOWN ABOUT ST. THOMAS CHOIR FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. Olivia: WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT BRINGS TO THE COMMUNITY. Guest: I THINK IT’S GOING TO BRING AN OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR THIS CHOIR WITHOUT HAVING TO TRAVEL ALL THE WAY TO MANHATTAN. IT IS BRINGING A SOUND WE DON’T OFTEN HEAR AND IS REALLY WORLD-CLASS GROUP. ALSO, I SHOULD SAY NO TICKETS REQUIRED, FREE ADMISSION. ALL ARE WELCOME AND IT’S GOING TO BE A GREAT EVENING. Olivia: GREAT, YOU SAID WHAT TIME? Guest: 7:00 P.M. MONDAY, MARCH 18 AT FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. Olivia: IT IS COMPLETELY FREE FOR ANYONE? Guest: YES. Olivia: YOU HAVE ANY OTHER MUSICAL CHAIRS, OTHER EVENTS THAT HAPPEN? Guest: LOTS OF OTHER EVENTS IN THE FINE ARTS SERIES WE SHALL HAVE ONE EVENT PER MONTH. YOU WILL SEE ME AGAIN SOMETIME IN APRIL. Olivia: WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO THE MUSIC BACKGROUND, DO YOU HAVE A DEGREE? Guest: I DO, I PLAYED PIANO WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD AND ACTUALLY BECAME AN ORGANIST AND THEY WORK WITH A LOT OF CHOIRS AND THAT’S HOW I GOT INVOLVED IN THAT. GREAT, DO YOU WORK A LOT WITH KIDS AND GETTING THEM INVOLVED? I DO. I WORK MORE WITH KIDS WHEN I WAS IN WORKING ON THE INITIAL YEARS WHEN THEY WERE ABOUT SEVEN AND EIGHT YEARS OLD AND ARE LEARNING TO SING, GETTING USED TO IT. Olivia: WHAT YOU THINK ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF BRINGING MUSIC? Guest: IS A WONDERFUL THING TO HAVE KIDS, SO YOUNG, REALLY DIGGING INTO MUSIC AND MAKING IT A PART OF THEIR LIFE. IT’S JUST A GREAT THING AND WE ARE GLAD TO SUPPORT ST. THOMAS CHOIR ON THEIR TOUR AND LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT WEEK. Olivia: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD ABOUT AN UPCOMING EVENT? Guest: NOT SO MUCH, EXCEPT THAT IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH FOR ONE OF THE EVENTS, LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING YOU AND IT’S
