“Gospel on the Rivah”, Cool and Cloudy 9/17/2011

Title:“Gospel on the Rivah”, Cool and Cloudy 9/17/2011

"Gospel on the Rivah, 2011"

We had about 30 people participate in the annual "Gospel on the Rivah" at Portabago Bay. 60 degree temperatures and wind provided a cool reception. "Gospel" is a combination of fellowship, music and spirituality.

Fellowship – neighbors getting together after a long summer enjoying wine and various foods

Music – A sing-a-long of spirituals, old hymns, many from the 19th century with violins, harp and pianos

Spirituality – All in the midst of the majestic Rappahannock River on Portabago Bay. 

We had a great time and thank the ECM for doing the cleaning earlier in the day, for musicians Susan Onderdonk, Helmut Linne von Berg, Mildred Bollmon, and Marilyn Newman and especially for Helmut for organizing it.  Here’s a photo gallery of some of the highlights.
