Don’t miss ‘Mr. Chris and Friends’

Dear Editor,

On New Year’s Day, I was able to watch the “Mr. Chris and Friends” series on Vermont Public Television and boy, did his show lift my spirits. I already have tickets for his performance in Rutland on Saturday, Jan. 19 at noon. I hope my grandchildren can go but if they cannot, I am going without them.

You see, I too need Mr. Chris’s message. We all do. And his music. He writes a new song on every show and they are all sung from the heart. And … It’s not just Mr. Chris. It’s his friends too. All kinds of really authentic Vermont people. I didn’t know about Dr. Francois Clemmons, an old friend of “the” Mr. Rogers who sang with Mr. Chris a most beautiful song.

I want to learn to sing and play all of Mr. Chris’ songs because he sings what I feel too. He sings about kindness from the heart. His music helps me a lot these days. Please do not miss this show in Rutland. With or without the kiddos.

Kathleen Krevetski,
