Chamber Singers are relaxing at a coffee shop between school visits today. The coffee shop happens to be directly across the road from the community college where I taught for 10 years. We are in my hometown of Lee’s Summit.
Webster University Chamber Singers are on a Spring Break 2015 tour this week. The group started in Springfield on Friday. They sang today at the Community of Christ Temple in Independence, Missouri. School visits in Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma are set for the next four days.

Christine Brewer’s residency in American art song ended today with a recital featuring a bunch of students, and the great lady herself singing some ravishing songs in English.
Over the course of this last week, more than 25 students performed or worked with Christine. Carole Gaspar, Director of Vocal Studies, and Martha J. Hart, Assistant Professor of Music, arranged a wonderful and meaningful week of song study and performance.
Here are photos from the final recital:
