Dale Peterson, Minister of Music/Composer in Residence at Auburn First Baptist Church sent this wonderful email to me and the UAB Choir today. He kindly gave permission for me to share it with you.
I intended to send this note sooner, but alas! the demands of work prevented it. I want to convey to you and the members of the UAB Concert Choir that the recent performance at the ACDA convention in WV was absolutely magnificent! Polished! Powerful! The audience agreed with me.
And we both know ACDA audiences are very difficult to please and impress. But that is exactly what the choir did!
Everything relating to the concert (literature and execution) was outstanding! It was one of those few times when I was actually proud to be an Alabamian! My best to you and the members of the Concert Choir!
