By the Light of the Moon       December 2013

What a semester it has been with the Wisconsin Singers. I have learned and grown so much in these past few months, but what has really stood out to me is the people.

So many friendships have been forged through this organization, and I am cannot express how grateful I am to be a part of this family. Looking forward to a wonderful spring with many successful shows and even more memories.

Bundle up and travel safe these holidays!

This year the Wisconsin Singers have had each other to be thankful for, as well as well as a slate of great performances, including nearly selling out both nights at the Overture Center for On Campus (Friday was a full house and Sunday was just shy of capacity). With that great foundation underneath our belts, the Wisconsin Singers turned towards finals week and winter break.

In the nine short years since I performed with Wisconsin Singers, tuition at UW-Madison has gone up 98%! Unfortunately, Friends of Wisconsin Singers has not been able to increase scholarships to keep up with rising tuition.
