Forwarded by Fred, from Wendy Matthews:  Fred:  Could you please pass on to the chorus the band and my heartfelt thanks below?

Congratulations, Chorus! The concert was fabulous. I appreciate your hard work and dedication to music at NOVA-Alexandria. Many member of the audience ask me to convey to you their congratulations. It is very very, rare that any group in this area (amateur or professional) gets a standing ovation and fills Schlesinger. I am very proud of the chorus and hope you are proud of your accomplishments! I enjoyed working with you on Hymn to the fallen. A huge thank you to everyone! This was a true team effort. Enjoy your weekend.

Below are some upcoming events to enjoy. Congratulations again! -W
