Lone Star Park News Spot

What a beautiful day to make our annual trip down to Grand Prairie to audition to sing our National Anthem at Lone Star Park. In the past we were asked to sing on opening day for the Spring racing season.  We hope to get selected again.  It is a fun place to be on race day, with all the horses and hubbub.

While we were warming up in the uncommonly quiet courtyard area, a newsman smiled and said we “need more practice” and that we “better sing it again”.  They came over and set their cameras in front of us to sing once more.  With our warm up complete, Carl answered a few questions about us and we went in to our audition.

We all agreed that the 12 year old singer that went ahead of us (Liam), has a nice set of pipes.  A big sound from a small body.

We will let you know if we get selected to sing.

We sang our new arrangement of ‘The Star Spangled Banner” for the Allen Americans at the Allen Events Center. Our rendition was well received considering the compliments and the fact that none of us got checked into the boards as we shuffled off the ice.

The Allen Americans beat The St. Charles Chill 3-1.  It’s a great venue and a well run & entertaining event.

Prelude to Midnight Mass

Look Up Children, there’s a star in the sky!

Fine Spirits was excited to be part of ringing in Christmas at St Gabriel the Archangel by singing prelude music with the choir and several talented soloists.  Our own lead, Carl Reinelt, closed out the prelude music by presenting  “Sweet Little Jesus Boy”… a cappella of course!

Thanks to Music Director, David Cloutier, for including us again this year. Welcome Christmas.
