VOCAL JAZZ and STRINGS CONCERT WEEK June 14-18

Bravo to our Concert Choir and Chamber Choir students on a brilliant performance and recording session last week! I am so proud of your professionalism, preparedness and skillful singing. Masks and spacing truly did not affect the sound quality and exquisiteness of your performance! So many people have reached out to congratulate you all on a wonderful concert- it was a lot of music and a lot of variety, BRAVO!! The future of our Choral program is strong at Reynolds and I am so excited to see where we go from here – truly one of the best choral concerts of my career, THANK YOU!

If you missed the concert I will keep it running this week for friends and family to watch and share (it is the same link): https://youtu.be/92aQQK0Nf_k

 

To my Choir graduates, thank you for a wonderful 4 years. You will always be a special group to me and I will miss you all more than I can express. Please know you will always be welcome to stop by and sing with us (once pandemic rules are no longer in effect). Thank you for all the laughs, exceptional music and wonderful memories we have created, I will cherish them. I wish you all the best in your future plans, I am so excited to see what happens next!
