As one who is very out of practice in singing, I could actually use a class 
in voice, particularly in the area of breathing/projection. I know what I'm 
supposed to do, I just can't seem to do it anymore (too many years since 
high school choir!)

Dona Antonia,

I agree with Melody that this sounds like a wonderful event, and I can't 
wait to hear more. Barring any previous committments I have forgotten about 
or family events I can't get out of (I don't think I have either, but I'll 
check), I will definitely be there. Either way, if there is something I can 
do to help with preparation, please let me know. I'd love to help out.

In Service,
Anna bat Chaim
