"Making and experiencing music together is a demonstration of the best of human endeavor.  It is a process of reverse-engineering to go from pen and ink on a page back to the feeling inspired by the texts we sing. It is our hope to share this experience of joy with you in our performances. Your presence and support give us both the courage and the means to take this journey, and we trust that the benefit you receive as a result will make it all worthwhile."
