Several years ago, I attended a Heartland Chamber Chorale concert and was uplifted spiritually and mentally. Even though only a few of the original singers belong to the company, I have continued to follow them closely through the name change to Heartland Sings. This professional musical group inspires not only me, but also the many individuals who attend their frequent concerts. It is a thrill to observe how their expertise continues to appeal to an increasing number of followers in the larger Fort Wayne community.
At the beginning of the 2013-14 concert year I was asked to become a member of the Heartland Board of Directors. It has been my privilege to help make wise decisions to implement the growth of Heartland. For the last two years I have chaired the Hospitality Committee. I increasingly appreciate being part of the Heartland appearance at each concert. It is my pleasure to welcome attendees and afterwards to thank the music lovers for attending and share in the experience with them.
I am thankful to these wonderful singers for enriching my life as I continue to grow older. Thank you very much Heartland Vocal Artists for making our community a better place in which to live.
