Good evening everyone & welcome to Winter Concert Week!

I know you are as excited as I am to have worked so hard this semester learning challenging and beautiful music with the help of Allan, Deb, Professor Hammonds, our section leaders, our social chairs, and our own attention in and out of rehearsals! Thank you my sisters for all you have done this fall/winter to bring us to this week. I look forward to presenting our music and musicianship in the form of a beautiful and meaningful performance next Sunday. I thank you all for your dedication to Women’s Voices Chorus. YOU are the lifeblood, the spirit, and the energy that will bring LIGHT and LOVE to our community!
