Ancora

a Seattle-based women's chamber choir

TESS: 9/17/12

Hello ladies,

Thank you so much for another successful performance.

It’s not how long you have been doing something that makes you good at what you do, but how present you are.
~ Sidonie Bouchet

And I felt like the choir was completely present in every cell for every note.  

We now have some back work to cover in the next few weeks. By the end of our all-day rehearsal on the 29th, I want us to be caught up with the Mega Map.
