The Forty Niners Chorus: A Sentimental Journey looks back over more than 50 years of song and service by a unique community choral group. Author Kris McGuckin draws on a lifetime of experiences with the Forty Niners to relate both the musical and social aspects of this unusually close knit organization. Her use of pictures and personal recollections help make this journey a delight.
Long time chorus member, Darci Devilbiss, noted that 'being a part of the Forty Niners has meant friends and fun and lots of good food. It has meant frustration, fulfillment, work and play, joy, sorrow, laughter and tears. It has meant lovely, loyal people." A Sentimental Journey captures that spirit of the Forty Niners. This entertaining account of an organization that has, for over a half a century, encouraged the continuation of community singing, is indeed A Sentimental Journey.
