Our Spring Concert
One of the benefits of doing a concert with Indian River Charter High School has now become evident.
Being, on average, younger than the members of the Vero Beach Choral Society, they are more tech-savvy and have produced a video of the concert. It is hosted on Youtube, and can be seen at this link: https://youtu.be/ouRJBqW5LOU?t=5m14s
We Have a New President!
Here's the news that you have all been waiting for. We have a new President, taking over from Marie, whose commitment and dedication will be hard to follow.
But we have just the man for the job! With youthful energy and a vision for our future, the new President elected by your Board is . . .
. . . Father Berek Q. Smith! (but you can call him Berek).
And his running mate for Vice President was George Bodine, who will be assisting him and taking over on occasion, when needed.
Completing the line-up, Alan Northcott continues as Treasurer and Rebecca Terranova as Secretary.
Jason revealed his plans for the coming season at the Board meeting, and we are moving forward with some beneficial changes that will continue the recent improvements in the group. Details in due course!
An Amazing Concert . . .
. . . was one of the reactions to our 30th anniversary Spring Concert, done in collaboration with the students of Indian River Charter High School (who, incidentally, are going to Carnegie Hall at the end of May to sing Rutter under the direction of John Rutter himself!).
If you missed it, shame on you! The program was varied, and even included a performance by one of our previous scholarship recipients, Emilio (that's him pictured on the right->). Everything worked out wonderfully, and there is even talk of doing more collaborative concerts in future to everyone's benefit.
We now go into a quiet time, with many going away for the summer and no more concerts until the Fall — but be assured that the Board will be working away to make sure that all works smoothly when they return.
