Working together during COVID
Quoted from "Chorus America", this sums it up beautifully!
"We must work together to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. Our communities need strong choruses to inspire and serve in the re-building to come, and we need each other to stay strong. That means staying connected about research and technology that provides new solutions and highlighting the amazing work choruses are continuing to do in the face of challenges. It also means making the case for our field’s value and need to legislators, funders, and other decision-makers who can offer support."

A musical Salute
An octet from CES was on Sonoran Living Channel ABC15 on May 4th. We were promoting our Armed Forces Day concerts, honoring all our veterans. "A Musical Salute" is filled with patriotic music, a Civil Air Patrol Honor Guard, and a highly decorated retired Naval Pilot who flew in Vietnam. Veterans are invited to join us at no cost!
Choral music in Scottsdale
Choral music is my passion for the art creates community. We all need music in our lives and singing together connects people. In my lifetime, this is the most vulnerable, emotional time in our country since my memory of post Viet Nam War. Music soothes, heals, and crosses borders. Come enjoy our Scottsdale choir soon!
