Renaissance singers 002

Geauga Renaissance Singers entertained Kent State University Geauga students during lunch on Thursday, November 21, 2013.  The group performed a variety of songs including: love songs, songs from musicals, and, of course, some holiday tunes.  Feet were tapping and there were smiles on the faces of those in the audience while the seniors sang.  Students and staff commented on how much they enjoyed the performance.  The singers admitted they enjoyed themselves as well.

The Renaissance Singers began in 2006 when Milly Tornberg was persuaded to start the group that meets at the senior center in Chardon.  Milly has years of musical experience, having taught music to all grades of school age children and directed a church choir for years and she holds a Master of Music in Choral Conducting.  Her talent is complimented by the range of voices and enthusiasm the singers add.  The group has grown considerably since its origin, from around a dozen singers to about 30.  They practice every Thursday at the senior center and perform at least 25 times during the year at nursing homes, assisted living homes, and occasionally at Kent State Geauga!
