Letters to the Editor

Letter | Singing the praises of our community partners

As we near the end of our season, the staff and nearly 200 members of Island Choral Experience wish to “sing the praises” of our wonderful families and other organizations in our community for their continued support, encouragement and unfailing belief in our music education and mentoring program. We continue to thrive because of this incredible network.

Thank you to the Mercer Island Covenant Church for providing us with “home” for 30 years. The generosity and flexibility of the staff allows us to continue to train and form young girls into confident, poised and talented performers and caring citizens. In addition, thank you to Emmanuel Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian Church and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for allowing us to use their space for extra rehearsals. Thanks to Camille Chrysler of Mercer Art Dance and Susan Valencia of the Children’s Dance Conservatory for also providing additional space for rehearsals.

We are also so grateful to the cheer and drill coaches of MIHS, the music teachers of all the MI schools, the many sport coaches and dance studios, who recognize the importance of working together to provide our children with every opportunity available to them. The heart of Mercer Island lies in the appreciation of the arts and the cooperative willingness to create a positive environment for the growth of our youth.
