You can hear her on Facebook speaking of the commissioned piece by Carlos Simon, ‘Affirmations’ in which she quoted in part,
“I love and approve of myself.

Concluding with the dramatic final words of the piece…”I Am Free!”
Soprano Sunni Shin was magnificent singing ‘Amazing Grace’ and one walked away uplifted and inspired!
What fun to see dear friend Chris Johnsten from the LA Opera!
What a delight giving a shoutout to Lovely Marguerite Marsh.
And the always elegant Elizabeth Greenway, Chief Advancement Officer for the Master Chorale.
