In Case You Missed It - News and Tidbits - Sept. 27

With the National Quartet Convention this week, that's really been the focus. However, here are a few other news items -

  • Lily Isaacs' mother, Faye Blauschild, passed away on Friday. She was 95 and a Holocaust survivor. Lily had flown out last week to be with her mother after she had emergency surgery.
  • The Jubilee Christmas Tour has announced a partnership with Socks for Seniors in an effort to collect and distribute socks for senior citizens. They are working on special appearances by the artists to deliver socks themselves.
  • The Singing News fan awards were held on Thursday during an afternoon showcase at NQC. Here's my recap with a list of winners.
  • The Dixie Melody Boys announced Doug Pittman as their next tenor. He took the stage with them earlier this week for a song.
  • The Old Paths announced Josh Townsend as the group's piano player. He has been traveling with them for select dates, but will now be full-time. He is only 16 years old.
  • If you've missed any of my highlights and recaps of NQC, check them out here. Last night was the only night that I wasn't able to watch any of the webcast. And don't forget to check out my fellow bloggers' sites as well for their thoughts as well. Some of them are actually there in person! Here are the ones who have posted so far from NQC (I hope I haven't missed anyone.) -
