Dear JHS Vocal Members,

What can I say?

How can I express my gratitude for all your hard work, time, energy and commitment?

Tonight was a moment that I will always remember.

You sang with focus, passion, joy and expression.

You held court with the Vivaldi "Gloria".  Never could I imagine that I would work with a group of young people willing and brave enough to sing classical literature, with such professionalism and focus.

You all should be extremely proud of your accomplishments.

I know I am!
