Whether you know it as Moody Men’s Glee Club or Moody Men’s Collegiate Choir, any number of memories will come to mind when you think of our choir. You might recall rehearsals or concerts, maybe even a particular church which sticks in your mind. Maybe you’ll remember a certain bus ride or interesting historic site. Or some beautiful scenery from one of our tours. Perhaps it is a home stay and a family with whom you especially connected. You might recall the quick change from the black tie and cummerbund to the red-checkered ones. Or the “birds” (kaw, kaw!). Or root beer floats on Friday night of retreat at Lake Geneva.
More likely is a lasting friendship–or multiple friendships–with men who were “comrades in arms”–singing, serving, traveling together, sharing life experiences that were unique to your Moody days and your time in MMGC/MMCC and, in many instances, never repeated since–at least in the same way.
Coming back to MBI, connecting once again with faces and memories that are an indelible part of our lives as former members of Moody Men’s Glee Club/Moody Men’s Collegiate Choir is, in a sense, coming home–coming home to a place that had a strong, positive influence on us, coming home to once again sing of our faith with like-minded friends and brothers.
That’s a big part of the 60-year heritage of our choir, something which we gladly, gratefully celebrate. Together. Home at Moody.
