Greetings, Intermediate Singers!
On behalf of Matthew, Simon, and me, thank you for another great rehearsal, and thank you to all the parents who made it to our Parent Orientation – it was great to see so many familiar faces, and to meet many new families! Even in our second week, I can see we have a very special group of singers who care deeply about music and their quality of performance. I am very excited for a great year of singing, musicianship, and building a close community of musical friends!
