Pro Carolers in Leland Dec. 10
Yes, Virginia, there are professional carolers
By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 3, 2021
Free, open to all, with easy social distancing on a snowy outdoor “stage” illuminated with thousands of lights and decorated trees — the Sashay Quartet’s upcoming holiday caroling performance promises to draw and delight all generations of holiday revelers. The quartet wowed a crowd with songs on the lawn of the Old Art Building in Leland last year. By popular demand, they’re coming back to do it again at 5:30pm Saturday, Dec. 10. The Sashay Quartet — made up of Jill Steckley, tenor; Deb Densmore, lead; Lori Phillips, baritone; and Jill Watson, bass (all members of the all-female, award-winning Grand Traverse Show Chorus) — has been performing since 2005. The setting for their songs couldn’t be better: The Old Art Building’s front lawn is covered with thousands of lights and many Christmas trees adorned with “Peace” ornaments decorated by community members. For additional information, call the Old Art Building at (231) 256-2131. Photo above courtesy of Becky Ross.
