Dear Intermediate Singers,
It is with great pleasure that I am writing my first Intermediate blog post! My apologies for not writing to you last week. I have been under the weather with a good case of bronchitis, but I am feeling better this week and want you to know I am truly excited to begin this journey with you as your conductor. Your enthusiasm and willingness to learn have inspired me!
