logoWhile the 2016 conference is now history, we are so grateful to all those who led the way in making this event so smooth, so strong, and so full of well-prepared magnificent choirs sharing such beautiful music with us. Our thanks to President Patrick Ryan and President-Elect and Program Chair, Nicole Lamartine, our Treasurer, Carol Stewart-Smith, and our Honor Choir Chair, Amy Ballard.
