Alamos Youth ChoirLast modified: June 17, 2013
05… These young spirited voices are heard in church, homes and streets…
During the week these young singers practiced in a house on Calle Commercio. The church and police station, in opposite directions, were a couple of doors away. The words and voices reverberated throughout the youth choir’s practice room and floated out for all to hear. Many pedestrians and bike riders stopped to listen. From a distance, the mix of birds, dogs, people, automobiles and heavenly choir created an urban opera in a rural setting. My notes indicate that Elvia B. Hurtado Figueroa, Lourdes Acuna, Magdalena Acuna, Jesus Acuna and Virginia Salido Antelo(?) may be some of the subjects in this photo.
