Devanee through her exploits with “Clearlakes Chorale” has acquired a number of mentors — two of them being Dan & Dianne Monahan, the ones that very kindly got her a scholarship (through their well earned influence) so that she could sing with the ‘Great Waters Festival Chorus‘.
Dan and Dianne are very talented and active musicians. In addition to singing with Clearlakes and the Great Waters Chorus Dan also sings, near weekly (if not more), with the Gilford-centered “Lakes Region Chordsmen”. They were having their fifth, and last for the Summer, concert at Weirs Beach — at the ‘Patio Garden Restaurant‘ at the ‘Winnipesaukee Marketplace‘. They called up yesterday morning and asked whether we would like to attend. We agreed. We ended going together.
IT WAS FUN. Beautiful evening. Calm. Moon out. Weirs at its subdued, stately best. No bikes. No trains. Sedate.
About 40 kind folks from Nashua drove up to sing. We also had an award-winning Quartet. We are glad we end.
I ordered some appetizers and a glass of red wine for myself. It was extremely pleasant. Good music, grand people, spicy buffalo chicken tenders and a glass of red.
