DECEMBER 2016 / JANUARY 2017
Despite the heart-breaking, mind-boggling, terrifying election, we have much to look forward to for the rest of the College Club year. The December 19th program promises to be something new and truly exciting. Tom and Jocelyn Colao have been so helpful with the mechanics of our meetings. Now we will be reminded of how truly talented they both are.
On January 16th, I hope as many of you as possible can come to a morning continental breakfast at the Nassau Club at 10:00 a.m. Please bring a friend who might be interested in joining the club. This winter gathering is a great chance for us to get to know one another better.
GENERAL MEETING: MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2016
at ALL SAINTS CHURCH – 1:00 p.m.
Tom Colao, tenor, is currently Director of Music and Organist at All Saints’ Church. Born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago, Mr. Colao attended the Mannes College of Music in Manhattan, studying voice and choral conducting, before transferring to Westminster Choir College to pursue studies in organ and sacred music. While at Westminster, he sang as a member of Westminster Choir, under the direction of Dr. Joe Miller, in addition to performances with the Choir, as both a tenor and as an organ soloist. He also made frequent appearances conducting various student ensembles. Mr. Colao maintains an active schedule as an accompanist, vocal coach, freelance conductor, and recitalist. In addition, he is the composer of several works for both choral and instrumental ensembles.
Mr. Colao and his wife Jocelyn Colao will share their talents with us on December 19th. Remember to bring as many guests as possible to enjoy their talents.

A holiday shopping trip to Doylestown, Pennsylvania is in the works for December 9th. We thought we would start with the Mercer Museum and go from there. Doylestown has some wonderful restaurants and many shops. Please let Kathy Hutchins know by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (609-430-1565) that you are interested in a day in historic Doylestown.
