(Not) Listening to the Choir   Leave a comment

In an earlier post I mentioned that every Saturday morning a local Mennonite church choir sets up on Penn Square and sings hymns.  Tourists and other infrequent visitors gather around, take pictures, accept or decline the religious literature, and usually applaud the singing — which is quite good.  For the hour or so when the choir is there, however, the locals are pretty much displaced.  Most move off to nearby benches and retaining walls to wait it out.  Others simply stand to the side which, in this case, highlighted a social contrast that captured my attention.
