Chairman Reynolds passes along wonderful words

Choir,

Dr. Reynolds wrote these wonderful words to President Garrison in support of our request for ACDA travelling funds. I asked him if I could share them with you and he agreed. Please thank him if you get the chance.
In our world of choral music, there are few greater honors than to be invited to a regional or national convention of the American Choral Directors Association conventions. The performing venues are packed with choral conductors, deans, administrators, and students from all over the nation who enthusiastically appreciate the music of those few chosen to perform. Our choir has been honored with an invitation and this on the heels of their resounding success in France at the choral competition there and in Notre Dame Cathedral. As you can see from Philip's email, they will also perform with the ASO and in Carnegie Hall this year. There is no other choir in our state (and none that I know of in the southeast) that has been so active and recognized in recent memory. In short, we have one of the finest choirs in the nation and, come February, everyone will know it.


These are some of the nicest words that have ever been said about our choir. I appreciate them and I know you do too. Please remember Dr. Reynolds' support of our choir when you have an opportunity to help him with a task or kind word.

Can I just say how much I miss being a part of the UAB Choral Program? Especially because since I've been out here at BYU, I haven't had time to be a part of any performing group. I miss y'all!

What was that "smart-aleck" remark you were planning on leaving on my blog?
