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! Lys
