The Sentimentalists

September 30 – 4:00 PM

The Fine Arts Committee is pleased to report that Trinity will welcome the Senior Choir of Mount Prospect this Fall.

The chorus is made up of a group of seniors from Mt. Prospect and neighboring suburbs. The 15 members–13 women and two men–meet at the Mt. Prospect Village Hall at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesdays. They meet because they love to sing.

The chorus was founded in 1993. Current Director, Phil Crail became the group’s director when the Chorus’ Founding Director, Janice Farley left that position. He was singing with the chorus at the time and Mrs. Farley asked him if he would consider taking over in 2005.

Crail has directed three church choirs throughout his life. He helped his brother, David, found a church in Elk Grove Village where David served as pastor for 29 years. David was also director of music for the choirs. He is a member of the Northwest Symphony Orchestra and Mt. Prospect Community Band.

The Sentimentalists continue to meet at village hall. The group loves singing old songs, one of which is titled “Sentimental Journey,” a popular song written by Les Brown and Ben Homer, with Doris Day as vocalist. That is how the chorus got its name.

On September 30th, under the direction of Phil Crail, The Sentimentalists will perform a variety of songs such as Hymn of Promise, Peace in the Valley, Climbin’ up the Mountain, Ride the Chariot, and A Patriotic Festival. Additionally, there will be several instrumental solos.
