Love where you live!
Forty years ago a group of San Diego youth, under the direction of Mary Hornberger, sang a "one-time performance" at the Southern California United Church of Christ Annual Conference in Pomona, California. The rest, as they say, is history. The group, which became known as The Great Day, went on to perform throughout California and, eventually. nationally and internationally, over the course of the next 30 years. Singers were drawn from throughout San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles Counties, with an affiliate group even forming in Scotland for a joint tour. Approximately ten years ago the group stopped performing on a regular basis, with only the occasional reunion performance in the years since.
On the occasion of their 40th anniversary alumni are coming together from across the country - and beyond - to join Founding Director Mary Hornberger and Founding Coordinator Dick Duncan in a reunion weekend filled with memories, music and fellowship.
The public is invited to join Great Day alumni, family and friends in a Great Day Reunion event, Saturday, July 21st at 7:00 PM at the United Church of Christ La Mesa, 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, California. Part informal mini-concert, part rehearse-as-you-go performance, part sing-along, part vocal-flash-mob, the evening promises to bring back wonderful memories and form new ones.
The Great Day alumni will also be providing the music for the Sunday, July 22nd 10:00 AM worship service at University City United Church, 2877 Governor Drive, San Diego, California.
For further details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alumni in particular are urged to make contact as soon as possible for details of other reunion weekend events not open to the general public.
