Nelms credits those who helped with the slide show production:
"Sharing the slide show from The Reston Chorale's performance of 'Reston: Celebrating the Vision and the Visionary' in honor of Reston's 50th Anniversary and Robert E. Simon's 100th birthday. Many thanks to Ruth Overton, Pat Macintyre for use of her beautiful sketches, Mike Olson and contributions from members of The Reston Chorale."
The Reston Chorale performed "A Celebration of the Vision and Visionary," the premiere of a new work for chorus and orchestra by renowned composer Donald McCullough. Commissioned by The Reston Chorale, the work commemorates the 50th anniversary of Reston and the 100th birthday of its founder and The Chorale's friend, Robert E. Simon, Jr. (Click on the link for more upcoming events for the 100th and 50th celebrations.)
Next concert by The Reston Chorale is:
"Feelin' Groovy: Reston - The Early Years"
Here's a preview of what you'll hear: "Groove to the sounds of the 60s and 70s - from the Beatles and Beach Boys to Simon & Garfunkel and the Supremes - as we remember the songs we were singing when Reston was new."
