Golden Gate 2012: 549 Phillips Farewell

Will leading no. 549 Phillips Farewell from The Sacred Harp (1991 Denson edition), at the eighth annual Golden Gate All-day Singing, 22 April 2012, held at the Potrero Hills Neighborhood House in San Francisco, Calif. and sponsored by Bay Area Sacred Harp.

Will is wonderful leader. Not only does he have a fine tenor voice, not only does he communicate well with the class, but he always seems warm and welcoming.

It’s a little hard to hear it, but here’s what he says at the beginning of this video:

I want to say that the Golden Gate singing was the first, practically the first convention I ever sang at, and I’m just so glad to see friends from long long ago. And I especially remember Linda, so this is the anniversary of our meeting.
