A note from Denise Brownlee

 I saw Ellie Haun Friday and she told me some of the titles you are singing this season, so I checked the blog just now...what a great lineup! I had the wonderful opportunity when I was in 8th grade to attend a summer music camp with Jester Hairston as the conductor. He was a funny, engaging man and what an experience! We sang "Amen" which he also sang with us. Just wonderful - can't wait to hear his piece.

A note from Ramona

Wanted to let you know that my dad passed away this morning.  He had really declined the past couple of days, so it was not unexpected.  Still very hard, as you well know!  We will be going out to Grandle Funeral Home this afternoon to make arrangements.

Ramona's father

Ramona's father has taken a serious turn for the worse, so Ramona will not be with us tonight. She would appreciate prayers for herself and her family.
