Thank you, Miss Amanda, for your visit and for your report on our beloved church. It is so helpful to get an outsider's perspective on the whole thing.

I feel that your report is accurate and fair. I am sad that only one person welcomed you to the service. That is an area we know we need to work on and we thank you for pointing that out.

I feel like our choir really took it "in the shorts" but, as a choir member, I can't disagree with the assessment. We could use a few more leaders in a couple of sections (to help shore up pitch) and a lot more attention to phonation. We do have a concept of blending, breathing and dynamics, but we're still early enough in our musical learning that we need to be reminded more often about them.

Thank you again for your visit and report. I hope we get to see you again.

Cindy Walleywe
