By day, Gabrielle Ellers is the most wonderful person you never hope to meet. She works as an oncology lab technician, a job in which her immense kindness, her quick wit and her down-to-earth humor sustain patients and their families through some of the darkest moments of their lives. In her off hours, Gabby expresses this same spirit of joy and humanity through her music. Gabby is a member of the Mohawk Valley Chorus, whose 2013 Pops Concert she opened with a solo rendition of Kris Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee." She also performed recently at Mountain Valley Hospice in Gloversville, where she brought down the house with a collection of old favorites. Hear her haunting version of Concrete Blonde's "Joey" on Gabby's MySpace page, and join us on June 10 to give her a big Bleecker welcome. Please note that the Society meets the second Monday in June, as the Bleecker Town Hall is otherwise occupied on the first.
