I am filled with gratitude, thinking of the dozens and dozens of contributors that helped to make our State Conference a grand success. Presenters, conductors, singers, committee chairs, facility coordinators, honor choir coordinators, ushers, presiders – it takes a village! What a vibrant and engaged choral community we enjoy in Minnesota.

As we launch a new performing cycle, I am wishing you the time and peace of mind that allows you to bask in the stunning sounds of this season. The music that is being shared this month is a gift to a weary world. Let’s encourage one another – send a link to a friend each day – sharing a performance that has touched you.

“Music and singing has been my refuge, and music and singing will be my light. A light of song shining strong. Alleluia.”  (from Frank Tichelli’s EARTH SONG)
