Welcome prospective, and, current members of St. Maries Singers!  I am so happy to be back making music with you this season.  I am grateful to Jennifer Drake for taking over in my absence in the Fall.  We have lots of music planned to keep us working hard and having fun, including collaborative pieces with the other ensembles in SMCA.
