Final Blog of the 2014-15 season or is it the 1st of the 2015-16 Season...?

I can hardly believe it. It's been almost a year since my first blog contribution for the Lincoln Choral Artists Director's Connector.

Last season was my first (very successful) season as Artistic Choral Director. I have used this space to promote the joy and trials of choral music leading, singing, and development. I have tried to show some of my personal joys in music and hopefully brought some new insight to the music we performed. I can't wait to get started with a new season. And really it begins with LCA singing the national anthem for the Saltdogs on Aug. 23, 5:05pm at Haymarket Park. We then begin in earnest with our first rehearsal on Aug. 27 at 7:30 back at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Writing a blog has pushed me to be more creative and clear about why I do what I do...why supporting choral music is essential to building community and adding to the cultural conversation in Lincoln and the surrounding area. 

I can't wait to stand in front of and with these committed and dedicated people. But of course we are always looking for more voices. Please share with a friend or neighbor, maybe a spouse or a child that we are looking for new singers. www.lincolnchoralartists.org/singwithus.html
