Ember

** A Very Blessed Union **

On Sunday, August 17, 2019 we Singers of Ember were honored to come together in music and joy to witness the wedding of our beloved director Deborah Simpkin King and Mr. Gary Peterson.

A cherished gathering of Deborah and Gary’s closest friends and family reveled in thrilling festivities, in a most unique of settings, the Yacht Atlantis, which boarded on the docks of Liberty Marina in Jersey City and set sail among the waters of the Hudson River, New York Harbor, and New York City’s East River. Seen here is but a sampling of photos contributed by some of the members of the Ember singing family, armed with their smartphone cameras to capture the stunning views and happy moments as the celebration drifted up, down, and around the waterways that embrace the southern Manhattan coast.

If our distinguished Artistic Director and Founder doesn’t already take her singing family of Ember and its audiences on fantastic journeys of deeply thoughtful choral programs, it is perhaps not unexpected that Deborah and Gary would take us through an equally exhilarating experience aboard the Yacht Atlantis for the ceremony and reception.

It was no surprise also that Ember would find itself contributing in earnestness a part to the beautiful wedding ceremony, which culminated the first half of the voyage, anchored in the middle of New York Harbor, singing songs (you can quite easily guess who chose the music) that evoke the beauty of love that is felt through the sensory forces and objects of nature and that is realized fully through the act of two hearts being united, Lady Liberty standing guard in testament to the freedom she represents and inspires, including that which one achieves through the selfless giving of oneself to another.

With deeply heartfelt adoration and immense joy, we members of Ember and the entire Schola Choral Arts organization extend our heartfelt Congratulations to Deborah and Gary on their blessed union, and wish them nothing short of immense Happiness, Health, Peace, and Love!!

A meaningful discussion about why we need choir.
