With open hearts and open arms, we begin the choir season by welcoming in new faces – both staff and students. Did you know there are only five rehearsals before the first concert? And in that time, new singers begin to learn their way in a new language, and they learn how to work together as a team, and they are reminded of the need to pay attention and to bring their best. Behind the scenes, staff members are busy getting uniforms fitted, organizing volunteers, and so much more. This concert includes all four choirs singing together, even our youngest members of the ABC program. And it’s followed by a spaghetti dinner cooked by members of our Board of Trustees. Judy Hafso composed a piece that we will share with you at this concert, called Room for All, which includes the line, ‘there is room for all in this family, and each has a gift to bring.’ We hope you will join us as we share our gifts with you. You are a gift to us!
