ILR Celebrates the Holidays

Come join our holiday celebration! After a brief business meeting, we will enjoy a light buffet of finger sandwiches, muffins, scones and pastries, fresh fruit, assorted mini desserts, coffee and tea.

Members of the Silk 'n Sounds Chorus will perform a selection of songs for us. Silk n' Sounds is a chorus of about 40 New Haven area women who sing in four-part a cappella harmony. Their songs include barbershop style tunes, American standards, Broadway numbers and cool jazzy selections. A few holiday favorites will be included in the mix.

The ILR Board of Governors is hosting this event and there is no charge for ILR members. There is a $24. fee for non-member guests.

If after you respond you are unable to attend, please let us know. ILR is charged for each confirmed reservation.
