Our ensemble is comprised of singers of varied backgrounds and strengths. We are brought together by a love of the literature, a desire to sing together and to learn more about our singing voices, and to improve. It is profoundly important to respect one another's abilities and ambitions, to support one another, and to take personal responsibility for being excellent one's self. We also have the responsibility to listen with an open mind and a joyful heart to the corrections given. Ultimately, our job is to perform works with integrity and beauty. The process should include astute preparation on each singer's part so that our time together is productive and pleasurable for us all.
