    New endeavours
    Our director, Jim O’Neill, has decided to move on and we’d like to thank him for his leadership and direction these past few years.    There have been many challenges through COVID to have proper rehearsals and sing outs, but we kept things going as best we could thanks to the wonders of Zoom!
     
    We wish Jim well in his new endeavours and hope he continues to have a song in his heart!

    Gail Urquhart
    Classic Blend is very sad to announce the passing of one of our long time members.

    Gail Urquhart joined Classic Blend in 1992 and was a proud bass who loved to sing.   She always knew her music, was forthright, witty and always willing to lend a hand.   She was our historian, parliamentarian, treasurer, choreographer and often our emcee at sing outs.  Gail would hold the audience's attention with interesting facts about each song and a twinkle in her striking blue eyes.
    Rest in peace, Gail.  We will all miss you very much.  Keep a song in your heart and may the road rise to meet you.
