FireChoir Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

On 8 June, we celebrated our 10th anniversary with our "Oh Happy Day" concert at the Zaantheater.

Special guest performer Dwight Dissels delighted the audience throughout the evening with several songs, revealing his extensive vocal range, charisma and smooth tone. By the reaction of the audience, it was clear they absolutely loved it! The choir was thrilled to work with such a talented and professional soloist. Unfortunately, we are not able to show video of Dwight.

Our other guest soloist that evening was Pam Osher, a talented young woman who is making great strides in her music career through her deep, rich and very expressive voice. She has performed with FireChoir for several seasons and we thank her for bringing so much joy and class to our concerts.

Besides our two guest soloists, we have several soloists within the choir who also had stellar performances. We thank these singers who gave many extra hours preparing for their performances. We appreciate their time and talent they gave to make this concert a success.

It is incredible what a 100+ voice choir (consisting of volunteers) can accomplish. I applaud FireChoir for memorizing 18 songs with choreography within 14 weeks. As a professional choir director/conductor, I can say that FireChoir is perhaps one of only a handful of choirs in the Netherlands that could do this. I knew they were up to the challenge since they were able to step in on a moment's notice to perform in the Streisand concerts. Thank you FireChoir for such an excellent performance!
