Mosaic Wows Packed House At Library
Wednesday evening it was standing room only -- and at the end a standing ovation.
Mosaic, a singing ensemble of eleven women, had its first public performance on June 15th at the Plattsburgh Public Library. The program entitled "One Hundred Years of Broadway" presented a medley of show tunes with some choreography thrown in to a packed audience in the PPL second floor auditorium.
The name Mosaic reflects the diverse backgrounds of its members. As explained in a news release the group was created by Sue Carroll, a former music educator who brought together talented singers from around the area -- students, working women, and retirees -- whose singing and choreography background ranged from fist-timer to seasoned professional.
The performance provided an insight into how musical styles have changed over the years through such songs as "Jesus Christ, Superstar" and "There's No Business Like Show Business." When united in voice the Mosaic women projected a room-filling sound without the help of sophisticated speakers, amplifiers, and microphones. What one heard was real talent.
To show their appreciation the members of Mosaic presented director Sue Carroll with a bouquet of roses at the conclusion of the successful show.
Sue hopes that Mosaic will incorporate other musical genres with future appearances.
