Doesn't Erin look fantastic?
I want to take a moment to say how much I will miss Erin next year. She has loved the UAB Concert Choir and it has been a wonderful five years.
Some losses are felt more by the director. Erin has been around long enough to know what I'm thinking in choir rehearsal most of the time. She can anticipate a rising frustration; it only takes a look from me to her to confirm what we are both thinking.
Erin is the type of person that will make notes for me without me asking her to do it--she takes charge in handing out dresses--she doesn't shirk away from any responsibility and instead seeks it out--it is the sort of thing I value very much.
In my mind, she joins a special club of students--ones that really had an impact on who we have become (and are becoming). We are better because Erin cared.
