Such a great time with a super group of dedicated musicians! Thanks to Maestro Robert Shoup and the singers of the Virginia Symphony Chorus! We had a wonderful two evenings of music–movement–learning–collaboration. It was a real joy to work with you all.
I was also humbled to learn of the amazing work that Robert is doing with the Norfolk Street Choir. The NSC "envision[s] a caring city where vulnerable persons are encouraged and affirmed through the arts." They work with people in various forms of housing insecurity and provide services and community in a joyful, affirming and safe environment.
I was so impressed with this initiative. I hope everyone will click on the links below and consider making a donation to this most impressive and critical service.
