A cluster of yellow daffodils and green grass

Airdate: Wednesday, April 27, 2022
Imagine a whole community gathering together to sing their favorite songs. Any large-scale event that brings people together after the last two years of the COVID-19 pandemic is noteworthy, but one that includes many friends and neighbors meeting to create music is what headlines are made of.
CHOIR!CHOIR!CHOIR! is a free community sing-in sponsored by the Appell Center for the Performing Arts in York this Saturday where anyone can show up to sing with one another.
On Wednesday’s Smart Talk, we’re joined by CHOIR!CHOIR!CHOIR! co-founders and directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman and Todd Fogdall, President & CEO, Appell Center for Performing Arts.
A sure sign of spring is when daffodils shoot up and bring some color to the landscape that has been brown and gray for the last five months. Daffodils are common – so common that many probably take them for granted. They are easy to grow and inexpensive, but there are between 40 and 200 different daffodil species and not all have that bright yellow bloom at the end of green stems.
The National Daffodil Show of the American Daffodil Society is in Gettysburg (at the Wyndham Hotel) Friday and Saturday. Daffodil enthusiasts from around the country will be there.
Joining us on Wednesday’s Smart Talk to discuss daffodils are Janet Hickman, from Lynchburg, Virginia, newly elected President of the American Daffodil Society, Anne Wood, author of the new biography of Dr. William Bender — “Yes Daffodils do have seeds.” of Chambersburg, former President of the ADS and Robert Darling, Photography Division Show Chair for the ADS 2022 Convention.
