Sweet Honey in the Rock was performing in North Newton on Saturday evening and I went with some friends. It was in an older gym/auditorium with a balcony. That’s where we chose to sit and arrived early enough I was able to snap this photo of the rows of chairs.
The performance was quite wonderful, including a couple of numbers that were really moving. I kept hoping they would sing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” I think it would be a great number for them.
That concert was the wrap up to a Saturday that also included a chocolate tasting at a local church. It has been going on for five years previously and I’ve never heard of it. I consider myself pretty tuned in, but that had certainly escaped my attention.
