Twas the day before Christmas and Jeanne is snuggled in her bed for a long winter’s nap.   WOW.  The holiday concert season came to an end last night with a smashing performance of 270 singers at the Kennedy Center.   It was a spectacular evening for Encore.   We looked so classy and sounded so good.   When the final chord sounded,   I was drained.  Totally.   I had given my all.   And all I wanted was a hug from my husband and a glass of wine!   I got it.

I have the best job in the world.  I work daily with supportive, caring and talented singers.   It is a wonderful community of friends. We all have a common goal…… to make the world better through music.   And we do that so well.   All of the holiday concerts have been performed to packed and loving audiences.  We make a lot of people happy.

I do indeed have a lot to be grateful for this holiday season.   My singers, my conductors, Affiliates,  Jennifer Heinz- my superb assistant,  Encore partnerships, sponsors, donors, and my hard-working board of directors.   But it is my family……my daughters Heather and Tiffany, son-in-law Mike, my adorable grandsons Lucas and Trevor  and last but not least,  my husband Larry.  He tirelessly works to make Encore succeed and look great.   All the pictures he takes and all the videos he shoots and the countless hours of putting them on the web site.  We both had a vision for Encore and to see it working so beautifully is truly a gift.  

Happy Holidays everyone!  

And now……..that long needed nap!!

    It was such a joyful way to launch the holiday season with fellow singers, wonderful musicians, friends, families, and you, dear Jeanne, who made it all possible. Enjoy a very Merry Christmas.
