Their program of weekly rehearsals is enhanced by regular individual vocal coaching, workshops, autumn and winter retreats, performances, and touring.

Yes, I know Jan Cleaver is almost "June Cleaver" from Leave it to Beaver!  My parents had a good sense of humor.

I was a freelance writer years ago, and excited to do some editing for ChatterBlock.

The subject matter is ideal for me as a stay-at-home mom, who loves planning activities for my kids and their playmates.
