Welcome new families! The Novice ranks keep swelling…..this is an amazing and fantastic new season of growth, fun and music!

Let’s keep the momentum and spread of information about choir life going. I am so grateful to everyone for all of the work being accomplished. “It is never too late to join”

Thank you for a great week. Below you will find information some old and some new. Some is here to help our new families get oriented into choir life, and some is fresh and just coming together for us all.

Enjoy this beautiful weather and have a brilliant weekend. Love, P.
