Joyful Celebration

July 7th, 2016

[July 7, 2016] From Dr. Whitmire: Dear Singers – It has come to my attention that some of you have been petitioning the college regarding my leaving NOVA at the end of the coming academic year. I know that your efforts are motivated by good intentions and a desire to keep our wonderful partnership going. Now, as always, I am touched and thankful for your support, faithfulness and friendship. However, I respectfully ask that you cease writing and petitioning the college on my behalf. Your efforts will not alter the outcome. Moreover, I want the coming year to be a joyful celebration of our years together (1984-2017). Let’s put all our energy into the wonderful music that lies ahead – Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms – and savoring the hours we will enjoy bringing it to life. I can’t wait to get started!

[July 4, 2016] From Chorister Terri: Dear Members of the NOVA Community Chorus,

Many of us are dismayed that what seem to be arbitrary scheduling policies of the NVCC Alexandria music department have made it necessary for Dr. Whitmire to leave us at the end of this school year. If you share our feeling that NVCC management must not prioritize administrative scheduling policies above their mission to provide high-quality programs and instructors, please add your name to our petition at the link below.
