We are moving!! Vic and I, that is. We will be winding up our activities in New York and heading up to Vermont this summer. We have been going there for many years and my brother and family live there, so settling into a full life in Rochester, VT isn’t a far stretch for us. We will also have more time to visit family, including our new granddaughter in Texas.
I have been directing the Threshold Choir here in NYC for eight years now. Over the years many members have stepped up and there is an impressive group of people supporting what we do. So when I announced that Vic and I will be moving to Vermont this summer, I knew they wouldn’t like it, but I also knew TC of NYC would manage just fine after I go. It is an amazing group and we all learned the tricks of the trade together. We have a new Managing Director and are on our way to finding a Music Director.
I will also miss my other chorus, Rising Voices, a group for cancer survivors sponsored by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Integrative Medicine Center. They are enthusiastic singers who really enjoy the uplifting benefits of singing together. We are looking for a person to direct the chorus starting in September 2015.
I will update this blog more often to let you know about all the changes coming up. We really appreciate the extraordinary people, places and activities we’ve been able to experience during our 14 years in New York. The city will be calling us back now and then.
